Meditation 6 Week Course

Meditation

At Spanda School, meditation is our favourite thing! With grace and wisdom we have learnt that meditation is not another combat field. Instead, we take a few key attitudes into meditation that allow us to finally let go, be still and relax into love, as a natural unfolding rather than a dualistic battle.

For us, meditation must incorporate these elements:

  • Committing to stillness & joy
  • De-conditioning false perceptions
  • Aligning the mind, actions & life to a connection with the Infinite

Meditation is not a ‘goal-oriented’ practice, but an exploration of ourSelf, who we believe ourselves to be. What are you essentially? Your mind? Your body? Your beliefs? In meditation, we experience ourself first hand.

There are a few key attitudes which assist this exploration to its depth. They are:

  • Focus
  • Relaxation
  • Joy of being
  • Inquiry into the mystery

Meditation provides a new form of knowledge, that doesn’t come through reasoning and thoughts, but a direct experience of our essential nature. We open to a reality that is beyond thoughts. YES, we can know things without thinking about them. In fact, we do it everyday.
In meditation, we stop and recognise our own light and clarity. This reconditions our mind from believing it is a personality, to being rooted in a formless joy that is unaffected by thoughts, situations & limiting beliefs.

What to expect

Each week we will explore one of the meditation principles from the Hridaya Meditation. These philosophies inspire us to question the nature of our existence – allowing for an experience beyond the mind. This in turn provides a de-conditioning of habitual tendencies, habitual tensions, and limiting beliefs about who we are.

    I did the Beginner’s Meditation Course at Spanda with Ava. On my first session I already knew it was going to be really beneficial for me. I just felt totally at ease and peaceful and welcomed. After completing the course it is definitely something I hope to continue doing in my spare time. Meditation helped me, first and foremost, to just spend some time with myself. After struggling with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem for many years, I finally feel able to transform my situation and learn to love myself and let others do the same. It’s just all about taking time to go deep and get in touch with your real self. ~ Molly Kennedy (22)
