Intro to Meditation 6 Week Series with Alicia Golden
Thursdays 7:15 - 8:00 pm
Fee: $48/6 weeks
Limited to 12 students
Jan 25 - Mar 1
As many of us know, starting and maintaining a meditation practice can be very daunting. We often find ourselves struggling to make the commitment and then wondering if we are doing it correctly. In this series, students will have the opportunity to shed the idea of the “meditator” and simply practice being a human “BEing” rather than a human "DOing”. Through expanding our awareness of the present moment and accepting our conditions just as they are, we create space and the possibility of experiencing true freedom. Open to all students who are committed to showing up each week. 30 minute guided meditation followed by brief discussion.

Restorative Yoga is a practice of letting go and rejuvenation. By supporting our bodies with the use of props and relaxing into positions for minutes at a time, we engage in a mindfully active practice of non-doing by surrendering to deeply passive asana (postures). In addition to activating the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) associated with the “rest and digest” mechanisms of the body, this process allows us the time and framework to sit with ourselves, observe what arises, and observe how we impulsively react. In time, and with practice, we begin to create space between physical sensation or urges and their resultant actions and between our thoughts and emotions and our reactions. It is in this space we can begin to transform our mindless reactions into mindful ones, as we learn how not to be controlled by urges and patterning.
