Meditation

At Spanda School, meditation is our favourite thing! With some 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.

Meditation Retreats

Meditation retreats give an opportunity to students to let go of mundane responsibility and revel in the profound and nurturing atmosphere of the heart.

“Hridaya meditation is simple. Yet, where most techniques aim at mastering the mind, for us this is just the beginning. Every week we explore the deepest aspect of our being, the spiritual heart. The beauty of this meditation is that its perfect for beginners and advanced practitioners – Ava

Jarred Dickie is a friendly face you might have seen around Fremantle for years. In 2013, he left a 5 year stint as an underground miner to study Natural Medicine and simultaneously start a 4 year service role working at Manna Wholefoods. Here he embedded himself into the Freo community. A kind, intuitive and intelligent spark, he co-founded Kommunity Brew Kombucha in 2015, learning the incredible journey of running a small, conscious business.

I believe that the best way to be the best version of YOU is to find something to believe in, a practice that takes you beyond the norm and into a space where you feel most aligned with your higher self. This is what I have found in my spiritual journey inwards, learning to understand myself and how I work has allowed me to help others do the same.

Ava is the main teacher and founder of Spanda School. Her main offering is yoga classes, tantra courses and meditation retreats. She has dedicated herself wholly to awakening, service and the pursuit of knowledge.

Michael has had a long path of awareness which has included yoga, meditation and volunteer work experiences through Bali, Asia, Israel and India (Rishikesh). He has also lived and worked in Aboriginal communities throughout W.A. His realisation was that the 'truth' flows throughout all people, times, places and traditions and binds them together. These experiences alongside of his career in community services and compassionate approach as a (Masters qualified) counsellor, have drawn him to Spanda school. He is passionate about the role of Meditation and Mindfulness in both healing and loving life. 'The keys to your happiness are no longer in someone else's pocket from the past. They're in yours' Adyashanti.

Lani Noble is a lover of life and the wonderment of simple things. Dedicated to a life of deep inner enquiry she has an insatiable thirst for truth, nature and sharing the message of the Heart through yoga, meditation, ceremonial cacao, photography and writing. Her yoga classes are a fusion of yin and gentle Hridaya Hatha yoga accessible for all, from beginner to advanced practitioners. Each class is infused with a touch of mysticism as Lani blends classical yoga, Advaita Vedanta and Sufi teachings with somatic practices to encourage her students to explore the mind body connection, to feel each movement from within, to breathe, to accept, to let go and to feel free within the body. Qualifications: She holds a 500-hour RYT Certificate as a Hridaya hatha yoga and meditation instructor and she is also a 200hr certified Yin yoga instructor.
