April’s class will be a four part introduction to meditation. These classes will introduce basic concepts of meditation and spiritual experience. We will draw on old meditative practices, scientific insights, and recently developed mediation practices. We will also use movement and sound to connect with our inner experience. Special emphasis is devoted to the heart – the physical heart and the heart center (anahata chakra in the Hindu and tantric Buddhist traditions, latif khalb in the Sufi tradition) and start exploring the dimensions of the heart.  No prior formal meditation practice is necessary — all you need to bring is your presence, comfortable clothing, and a curious mind.

We will share in practices for cultivating the natural self, exploring the alchemy of the soul’s journey, and orienting more clearly to our unfolding purpose. Through retreat we touch upon our essential self, fresh and spontaneous, and affirm our rootedness in the sacredness of life. This in turn, fulfills a deep calling of the soul, bridging our inner awakening with our sacred task of participating in an earth of beauty.
