Ah, the mind. So full of wants and whims, worries and hopes, doubts and certainties. Meditation offers the opportunity to observe and connect with what exists beyond the chatter of our daily internal dialogues. In directing attention to the breath, we have a chance to notice our habitual ways of thinking and to experience energetic sensations in the body without being overwhelmed by, or retreating from them. In getting to know our own minds, we cultivate a friendlier attitude towards ourselves and others. In other words, meditation can teach us how to relate more directly to our lives as they really are.
Through ongoing special workshops and classes at Chaturanga, you may explore a range of meditative practices, from various forms of seated mindfulness-meditation practices, to moving meditation practices such as Anat Baniel/Feldenkrais, Tai Chi, Yoga Nidra, and more.
