Tis the season for giving! Beyond the material, may we also give our precious time, love, and presence to all who surround us. Over the next three weeks, we will explore the Metta Sutta, Buddha’s teaching on Universal Loving-Kindness, through the Metta Meditation.
May I be happy. May I be well. May I be safe. May I be peaceful and at ease.
See you on the cushion! Friday’s, 1:30-200 pm, at Breathe Los Gatos.
New research has demonstrated positive changes at a cellular level in breast cancer survivors who practiced meditation and mindfulness techniques. Results, like those found in this study, are positive news for all of us! Follow the link: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/6101130
Join me this Friday at Breathe Los Gatos, 1:30-2:00 pm, for a guided meditation. Depending on the day and our state of mind, just getting to the cushion can be a challenge. This week’s session should make it easier! We will begin with a series of simple poses to help loosen the body, alternate nostril breathing to help balance our energy, and finish with a guided meditation to keep our minds focused.
This coming Friday’s (Oct 31st) Breath & Meditation Class at Breathe Los Gatos is cancelled. I will be back on the cushion with you November 7th. Along with Nadi Shodhana (alternate nostril breathing), we will explore and expand in a guided meditation.
I am very excited (and yes, a little nervous) to teach my first Breath and Meditation class tomorrow at Breathe Los Gatos. I very much look forward to sharing some of my favorite meditation techniques from breath awareness to mantra over the coming weeks. Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years, and has a proven track record of benefits ranging from increased feelings of peace and calm, reducing anxiety and stress, improved focus, more creativity, and more compassion. See you on the cushion!
