MEDITATION AND YOGA

There will be daily hatha yoga sessions suitable for all levels of practitioners, but the main focus will on learning Vedic meditation. It is a very simple and effortless mental technique practiced sitting comfortably in a chair with the eyes closed. There is no need to concentrate, focus, or clear your mind of thoughts. There is no need for earphones, books or devices. Once you have learnt the technique, it can be practiced anywhere, anytime.

Vedic meditation is also known as the householder technique due to the ease with which it can be incorporated into busy lives. It is enjoyed by millions of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds. Absolutely anyone (including children) can learn this simple technique in just a few short sessions.

Vedic meditation is very refreshing for the mind and allows the body to access deep layers of rest and release years of accumulated stress. The rest gained in Vedic meditation can be five times deeper than sleep. Twenty minutes of meditation is the rest equivalent of about 3-4 hours of sleep. This is why 20 minutes, twice a day, is all we need to refresh and re-energise.

To practice Vedic meditation you will be given a suitable Mantra and shown how to use it. A Mantra is simply a sound, which is silently repeated in the mind. This sound has a charming quality and the mind is able to settle down in a very natural and spontaneous way. The mind will move from the active layers of the mind to the more quiet and subtle layers of the mind, until it transcendsor moves beyond thinking and comes to a complete state of rest.

Vedic meditation originates in India and draws from a 5,000 years old body of knowledge known as ‘The Veda’. Modern science is now verifying what the ancient sages of India discovered a very long time ago, that humans need to find a way to de-excite the mind, so the body can rest and restore wellness.
