MEDITATION CLASSES WITH CRYSTALS

 

There are different theories on meditation.   To me, meditation can take its many forms; whilst we are digging the garden, walking in nature, crafting, or more stiller forms of meditation that may include a focus of concentration such as gazing into a candle flame or clearing the mind and body of tension and working with our breath.

 

The objective of meditation can differ too, sometimes it is possible to meditate on a particular issue or question or to allow ourselves to sit quietly and calmly, especially with the hectic lives we lead. Meditation gives us an opportunity to create a state of deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent and to be anchored in the present moment.

 

Many studies demonstrate regular meditation can significantly reduce our levels of stress and so making a positive impact on our mental and phsyical wellbeing. To meditate and rid ourselves of negative emotions and thoughts and to bring about contentment, kindness and calmness, can only be a more positive place to be. Meditation can increase our self esteem, patience and resilience all helping to anchor us in the present moment of being.

 

Crystals are a passion of mine and much of my healing work and self development incorporates the healing properties that crystals offer.  Crystals can be used to enhance your experience of meditation and following the successful introduction workshop based on Winter Time I have developed a series of meditation classes that weave around the medicine wheel and seasonal calendar.

 

Each evening will consist of three meditations:-

 

  1. Cleansing meditation.
  2. Guided meditation on given subject.
  3. Grounding/integration meditation.

 

The purpose of each crystal meditation is to equip you with techniques that are easy to follow at home.  The introduction of the medicine wheel offers powerful teachings as we sit in circle together. We will be using teachings from the European Medicine wheel as we live on these lands.  The purpose of these teachings will enable you to deepen your understanding of each element and how you can weave this medicine into your meditations.
