Monday Meditation

Connecting and Engaging Life Force Energy

Monday Evenings:

5:30 to 6:30

Fee:  $12.00 

Life Force Energy is the subtle energy that infuses and vitalizes all matter.  In East Indian spirituality, this subtle energy is called prana, Traditional Chinese Medicine calls it chi, it is ki in Japan, reiki in the Usui healing system, vital force in homeopathy, and mana among Hawaiian kahuna healers.  

Eastern processes employ the use of subtle energy to effect physical change.  Eastern processes include East Indian Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine's Acupuncture, Japanese Shiatsu and Reiki, Hawaiian Kahuna, Reflexology, Qigong, and T'Ai Chi.  Here in the West, Homeopathy, many forms of Chiropractic, Healing Touch Therapy, Therapeutic Touch, and Massage utilize the body's subtle energy to encourage healing.

During this Meditation Series you will be guided inward to connect with, engage, and learn how to direct your life force energy through the use of yogic traditional breathing techniques (pranayama) and hand gestures (mudras).  You will deepen your knowledge on the Chakra system and yogic's energy channels called Nadis.  You will experience feeling, sensing, even seeing your energy.

 

By tuning into our physical and energetic bodies, we can move deeper into "pratyahara", withdrawal of the senses and rest within the true self.  When we are grounded physically and mentally, we are keenly aware of our senses....yet disengaged at the same time.  This is where we become the observer.  We can simply "be".  We evolve into an expanded state of awareness.
