ARE YOU TRYING TO HARD TO MEDITATE?
We live in a world that prizes critical, analytical thinking and effort. (We effort the hell out everything.) And yet the best experiences in life, when we’re in the zone, in the flow of the present moment, are when we’re barely thinking and not trying. But for most people these flow states are rare and fleeting. Why? Because we often find our minds are spinning out of control, a non-stop stream of brain chatter Buddhists call “The Monkey Mind.” Sound familiar? Come join Vedic Meditation master James Brown for a workshop in which you’ll discover the forces that prevent us from being present, and learn some simple, practical and effortless meditation techniques that engage your mind’s natural ability to settle on it’s own. (Yes, even your mind.)
In this workshop you will...
- Have your assumptions about meditation – what it is, what it's really for and how to practice – disrupted.
- Learn about an ancient Vedic approach to meditation that easily and effortlessly allows for deeper experiences, without trying to have deeper experiences.
- Leave with some practical, accessible meditation tools that allow you to be more present and grounded, even when life gets stressy.
