This 6-week course teaches therapeutic meditation to counter-balance the stress and anxiety of an overly busy life. The aim of the course is to help you find resources by going within and becoming more grounded in your body and more content in the present moment.
Katarina had been practicing meditation for over 25 years and for this experiential course she brought together a number of meditation techniques to create a framework that can be used by everyone, even those that have no previous experience of meditation. She has included those forms of meditation that she found most useful in her own life as well as in her clinical work as a psychotherapist, such as mindfulness meditation, breath work, visualisation, sounding, energy alignment in the body and many more. The course will also include some grounding techniques from Embodied Psychotherapy as well as some exercises based on the latest research in neuroscience; which has demonstrated that regular mediation practice can ‘rewire’ the brain by creating new neural pathways.
We all need to find ways to ground ourselves and remain centred in our lives no matter what challenges arise. When we do encounter difficulties, it is often our own state of mind that causes the most discomfort. Anxiety, worry, stress and other difficult emotions trouble us, along with old stories we tell ourselves that contribute to our predicament. We may try to bury or run away from these feelings and patterns, but they just seem to follow us everywhere – until we learn how to face them and transform them. One of the most effective ways to do this is through meditation practice. In this experiential course we will learn how to use meditation to reconnect with our ‘LIGHT WITHIN’ – the true wisdom that each of us possesses.
