An Initiation into Meditation

A peaceful retreat in the heart of Montnegre National Park. Static and moving meditations (ideal for those without postural issues).

Learning how to meditate is the best gift you can give to yourself in this life. Meditation encourages healthy neural connections, happiness, gratitude and calms inner agitation, thereby reducing illness and restlessness. Meditation is the pathway to success.

WHAT IS THE WORKSHOP?

\

TECHNIQUE

This workshop is an initiation into Buddhist meditation techniques, whirling dervish practise, Christian contemplation, the observation of breathing, visualization meditation, Sufi breathing techniques (otherwise known as zikrs), cardiac coherence, eating and walking meditations, as well as meditations that are practised by members of the Simultaneity School of Life. Included in the workshop are detailed explanations of these techniques as well as experiential practise.

\

RESPIRATION

Full awareness of the breath is the base of meditation techniques and attention training. To control attention is to control the energy of life. Allowing your attention to be robbed is to rob yourself of life. In this retreat, we will teach you how to become aware of your breathing without tension; how to flow.

\

INITIATION

This is a retreat for individuals of all ages who do not have postural issues. It is ideal for someone who has never meditated, as well as those who meditate regularly and desire to do so in a group setting.

\

PRACTISE

The techniques learned during the retreat are appropriate in a home setting as well as when you are out and about.
