*Meditation Class:

This group meditation class is particularly designed to support your daily sitting practice. You will have an opportunity to review techniques that help you stay more focused and aligned with the benefits of a regular practice. You will learn a basic pranayama breathing practice that prepares the body for sitting and helps the mind and nervous system to settle and quiet. You will also learn specific meditation practices and experience guided and non-guided meditation. We will also explore different spiritual texts and have time for questions and sharing.
Whether you are a long time practitioner or have just recently started a meditation practice, this ongoing meditation series will help you deepen into your practice and stay committed to it.  You can join any Friday in Mission Viejo from 5-6pm!

The Holiday Season presents a special time of the year, a time that invites stillness, sharing, peace and goodwill, a time that celebrates the gift that we are to each other. During this day retreat you will enjoy all this and more.  We will explore how basic therapeutic asanas can introduce the body and mind to the natural stillness that lies within.  We will also explore how pranayama (breath control) and dharana (concentration) help the mind find peace and balance, so that together we can simply sink into the essence of dhyana (meditation), the presence of NOW.  Being in silence throughout the day will enhance the feeling of well-being and deep contentment, allowing us to savor the true spirit of the Season!  As our day unfolds into the experience of deep inner quiet, you will be guided into a sound healing meditation in the afternoon.  Together we will embrace the healing possibilities of sound as an Awakening.  You will experience how these profoundly nourishing sounds can deepen your experience of peace, joy and equanimity.The day also includes a festive vegetarian luncheon allowing you to share the blessings of a meal in silence with each other.After we break the silence and for those who would like to stay, there will also be a traditional Shiva Puja (yogic ritual) from 3:30 – 4:30p which will include some chanting.   In Hindu mythology,  Shiva Nataraj (the dancing shiva) represents Shiva (God) as the source of all movement within the cosmos.  The purpose of the dance is to release mankind from the illusion of the idea of the ‘self’ and of the physical world, thus Shiva represents ‘liberation’.ShivaNatarayedit

Looking forward to sharing this beautiful annual celebration of life and liberation into Silence with you all.
