I am delighted to invite you to attend a 4 part meditation course of which Session 1 is Free.
I started meditating when I was 16, and though I didn’t know it at the time, it was the single most important life-decision I have taken.
I am delighted to invite you to attend a free introduction to meditation talk held in the hope that you will decide to learn Primordial Sound Meditation (PSM) technique in a course held in London on the 22 and 23 of February. For those that learned to meditate with me in December last year, you are also welcome to attend any of these sessions as a free refresher course.
For thousands of years people have used meditation to move the mind from a state of busy activity into one of profound peace and expanded awareness. In our age of increasingly busy schedules, the state of restful awareness that is accessible through meditation is more valuable to us than ever.
Meditation offers numerous health benefits, as evidenced in over a thousand peer-reviewed scientific studies. Our stress levels are often higher than we can comfortably process, and this can manifest itself in a multitude of physical and emotional issues. It is increasingly common for people to suffer from being ‘tired but wired’, unable to switch off but badly in need of rest.
Meditation is a practical tool that reduces stress levels and re-balances one’s system, and is highly conducive to physical and emotional well-being. When you meditate, several physical changes happen spontaneously, and practicing daily can help you to:
- Manage stress
- Reduce anxiety
- Improve your relationships
- Create inner peace
- Awaken your intuition
- Lower your blood pressure
- Become less judgmental
- Deepen your connection to spirit
- Enhance your sleep patterns
Dialing down anxiety levels allows the body to exhibit its innate self-healing abilities, helping to restore good health and well-being.
As a Chopra Certified Meditation Instructor, I teach Primordial Sound Meditation (PSM). This is a practice that derives from the ancient Vedic tradition of India. PSM practice can help one to progressively quieten one’s thought until one effortlessly slips beyond mental activity.
During the four sessions that comprise this meditation course, you will learn how to meditate using a mantra selected specifically for you. You will learn how to access the lifelong benefits that this one simple practice can bring, allowing you to discover your inner potential and innate creativity. Anyone who can sit comfortably can meditate: meditation is the most effortless thing you will ever do.
Session 1 – Introduction to Primordial Sound Meditation
In the first session, you will be introduced to the background of PSM and learn about the proven benefits of this healing practice – a highly effective technique that allows us to experience inner calm and deep relaxation. This session is offered free of charge.
Session 2 – Personal Instruction Procedure
Having attended one of the Introduction sessions, you will be taught your mantra individually, by appointment, on Friday evening or Saturday morning. The mantra is specifically selected for each individual student. It is a word that has no particular meaning. The word mantra has two parts: “man”, meaning mind, and “tra”, meaning vehicle, and this vehicle takes us from activity into progressively deeper levels of relaxation. You will learn why thoughts arise during meditation and exactly what to do when they occur; there is no need to force anything during meditation.
Session 3 – Perfecting the Practice
Having learned to meditate, in this session you will learn more about practical mechanics of meditation. We will cover the Do’s and Don’ts of meditation, which will help you develop a confident and enjoyable practice that will serve you throughout your life. This is also a forum where you can ask any questions and discuss your experiences. The class is concluded with a guided meditation.
Session 4 – Higher States of Consciousness
In this final session, you will discover the ways in which meditation accelerates the process of personal evolution. With each progressive meditation, layers of deep-rooted stresses are released. These stresses create a barrier between us and the realization of our true potential and, as they are dissolved though regular practice, we become more connected to our essential nature. Here, we take a closer look at experiences that may lie ahead as our consciousness expands and higher states of consciousness become available to us.
