“The soul makes the body.” – Ralph Waldo Emmerson
“You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body, temporarily.” – Walter M. Miller Jr
Yoga works on many different levels, layers if you like. Often it is likened to the peeling of an onion, you get through one layer only to find another. In yoga the layers of our being, our consciousness, are known as the Koshas. We will work this morning will all five koshas and have time for discussion. (Venue: Quarndon Church Hall, Church Road, Quarndon DE22 5JB)
May 9th - 09.45 to 12.15 - Exploring Meditation
“You must hear the birds' song without attempting to render it into nouns and verbs.” – Ralph Waldo Emmerson
"Dhyana is the unbroken flow of thought toward the object of concentration." - Patanjali
We all lead such busy lives but through our yoga asana practice we learn to understand our physical body and we begin to feel the change in the mind. This helps us then to be able to sit and meditate. So, this class will be an opportunity to work physically, noticing the changes as we find quiet time to sit to meditate. If meditation is new for you that is fine as it will be fully guided. If you practice regularly, you may notice a wonderful change in the energy around you as you meditate with a group.
Bring a couple of cushions or meditation stool or extra blocks as we will spend some time on learning to sit properly. (Venue: Eventide Community Hall, Hayeswood Road, Stanley Common DE7 6GE))
