This course will examine what meditation is, why we do it and how to do it, from a variety of viewpoints: From Eastern Yogic and Buddhist views to Western Psychotherapeutic understanding. The course will include personal, one-on-one training in Deep Meditation, as well as group instruction, to give the student an experiential basis for the practice of meditation. Students will be expected to meditate twice daily by themselves. Knowing why meditation works, and the range of benefits we can receive from meditation, helps to motivate us to establish and keep a regular daily practice. Knowing the obstacles that may arise during the practice will help us to be more vigilant, and to take things as they come. This course will be a balance of theory and praxis helping you to establish a solid meditation practice.

This course is limited to only 20 students!
