Let your mind travel as it must. You stay right Here.
Sattva Meditation (Wednesdays and Saturdays):
Sri HWL Poonja once said that "Meditation is when the mind is free and not holding thoughts. Let the thoughts come and go but do not run after them." Each session is guided by Megan Grandinetti and is intended to bring you out of your thoughts and into yourself, whether through use of breath, mantra, simple guidance, or silence. No experience is required. Come as you are, and be ready to look within.
When? Most Wednesdays at most Wednesdays at 7:00pm (ONLINE!) and most Saturdays at 9am (In-Person) on a pay-what-you-are-able scale. Please check the schedule for changes and updates, and as with all classes, please register in advance if you plan to attend. Please also check our "Events" page for special Kirtan, chanting & meditation events.
Qigong Meditation (2nd Sunday of Each Month):
All Qigong practice has a meditative quality. In these monthly 1/2 hour Qigong meditations at Sattva with Tammy Bray, you will experience a Qigong seated meditation with a particular focus that changes each month. Most often these meditation sessions will be based in Wisdom Healing Qigong. Katherine Allen states it well "It is possible for us to take responsibility for our own state of mind: to calm it, improve it and create a more positive reality. Meditation produces a state of deep inner relaxation, while at the same time stabilizing the mind and creating stronger Qi, or life force. In addition, meditation encourages personal and spiritual growth. It has a positive and balancing effect on a person's mental state and relieves conditions such as stress, anxiety, sleep disorders and depression, all of which contribute to a multitude of medical conditions. Meditation can also improve memory, confidence, insight, mental focus, mental clarity and possibly longevity." These monthly meditations are a good way to experience a part of the way of Qigong to see if you might be interested in further exploration of Qigong, beginning with the "Intro to Qigong" 4-week series at Sattva. These sessions can be engaged in seated on the floor or a chair.
When? The 2nd Sunday of each month at 11am. Cost is $10. Please check the schedule for changes and updates, and as with all classes, please register in advance if you plan to attend.
