There are nearly 100 benefits to meditation, which was the conclusion of over 3,000 scientific studies. Everyone is looking for emotional well-being, a healthier body, better cognitive skills, mental strength, and focus. But getting a handle on this practice can be quite difficult or challenging for many people. This is the purpose of the use of sound, and specifically what the ancients called, the subtle sound. The practice of meditation is simple in principle but very difficult in practice. That is why a ‘support’ like sound becomes essential in the discovery of how to engage this practice.
This short program will offer many entry points for personal discovery through insightful instructions and demonstrations using popular meditation sound instruments like Singing Bowls and Gongs for example. Meditation is a practice that requires a process, this fundamental element is necessary to understand. This is the usual obstacle that detracts people from the success of being able to do it. It has nothing to do with turning off the mind, a nearly impossible feat even for Yogi’s. Meditation is an active utility whereby awareness is sharpened, and through this awareness we can bring things to a still point. We will use different approaches, so attendees are encouraged to bring a yoga mat to lay on. Handouts will be distributed.
