MAKING PEACE with THE MIND
3-week Meditation Challenge
November 16th through December 6th, 2020
8:00 each morning CET via ZOOM
Many say it takes 21 days to form a new habit or to change an old one.
For most of us, 2020 has been a challenging year so far. We are in the midst of a pandemic, and we are experiencing social upheaval, and the effects of climate change. The future has always been uncertain, but now, more than ever, we are aware of it.
Meditation is a tool for learning to accept uncertainty, and to begin to flow through life’s ups and downs with grace.
Every experience we have gets filtered through our mind.
Thus, learning to see, and eventually change the mind’s habit patterns can radically shift our perspective and make it possible to feel the sense of spaciousness and peace even in the face of challenges.
But to change our relationship to the contents of our minds takes practice. This practice is called meditation.
And if this isn’t the time to learn to meditate, then when?
We ask you to set aside about 30 minutes each morning for three weeks, to get to know the tricks and ticks of your mind, and to learn to see them as fleeting, not who you are. This practice teaches us patience, acceptance and love. It shows us that everything is connected, that nothing lasts and that you are not alone.
During the course of this challenge we’ll go over :
✓ how to best sit.
✓ How to handle discomfort in the body and mind.
✓ We’ll talk about obstacles and progress.
✓ We’ll discuss what the Buddha said some two thousand years ago, and what science says today.
✓ At the end of each session there will be time to ask questions and to share one’s experience.
It is our belief that these teachings should be available to everyone, therefore this course is taught by donation. Suggested donation €50-€100 for the three weeks, but if you can’t give within that range, give what you can, and if you can’t afford to give at all, that’s fine too.
Ten percent of the proceeds will go towards ‘Leave No One Behind
This challenge is a collaboration between Hi!Yoga & Swanmountain Yoga.
