Marydale always stresses that the true purpose of yoga is to prepare the body to sit in meditation. Many people think that Indian cooking is complex and too difficult to learn with its multitude of spices, seemingly long preparation methods and more. The ingredients for these recipes can be acquired in local stores in the Vail area making it easy for you to repeat this meal for your loved ones. Join us for a delightful and educational culinary evening that will inspire you to make authentic curries at home. This 1-hour class begins by learning the meaning of a few simple Sanskrit mantras and how to chant them.
This class is open to students of all levels and for those who would like to learn a few spiritual exercises that they can implement in their daily lives.
I thank you for spending time in the monastery, for the lessons you have learned from your teacher, and your desire to pass them on to people outside of the monastery.
Meditation sessions are held twice a month, every other Sunday morning, from 10 am - 11 am at the Foundation. If we examine our life we will discover that most of our time and energy is devoted to mundane activities, such as seeking material and emotional security, enjoying sensory pleasures, or establishing a good reputation.
Although these things can make us happy for a short time, they are not able to provide the deep lasting contentment that we long for. The purpose of meditation is to cultivate those states of mind that are conducive to peace and well-being, and to eradicate those that aren't. Roger will be leading the meditation twice a month, every other Sunday morning, at 10 am - 11 am at the Center. In college I discovered Taoism and practiced meditation without much consistency until I came to California (mid-1970's) and began serious practice with various teachers in the San Francisco Bay area.
These classes are set up as warm, respectful and fun places of exploration for self discovery and meditation. The first half of the class involves learning a spiritual tool that when applied consistently each day can bring about a positive change in your life. Meditation classes and retreats are a fantastic way to improve your ability and feel better.
You can easily join one of the classes that we hold in Kyoto, and other spiritual locations. You have the opportunity to enjoy these energies in a way that you can make the most of them.
From the beginning you are taken on a journey that moves you through deep relaxation and the opening of your heart and mind. When you come along to a class your entire being is moved through the journey on all levels.
As you take time in meditation practice, you move along the pathway that takes you to the place of effortless joy that you seek. As you work through the exercises within the meditation class, you find your mind beginning to work in a new more effective way.

Deepening your meditation practice in this way gives you the opportunity for mastery over the things you wish to create and draw to you in your life. You will be amazed by the difference you experience from taking part in the meditation class. Working with the resources in the guided meditation, chakra meditation, meditation ebooks and resources sections will help you prior to attending your meditation class too.
Being intimate with another person is a life-long, interactive dance of pulling apart and coming together, laughter and silence, discord and harmony. Within mindfulness, we first learn to listen deeply to ourselves and then to the ones that we love. Shambhala Meditation Center of Phildelphia offers a wide variety of classes and programs that are perfect for anyone looking for a healthier mind, body and relational experience. You don’t need to practice Buddhism to look inward and find meaningful happiness at Amitayus Kadampa Buddhist Center.
Discover the peace within and support your relationship practice Sunday afternoons at Sri Chinmoy’s free meditation classes! Enjoy a guided meditation at Raja yoga that will lead you to peace, focus, happiness and health through breathing and relaxation. Open your heart, let yourself in and begin to know your true self through guided meditation. Exploring the various meditation techniques following our asana practice has shown us how much easier it is to enter a meditative state after doing yoga.
You will also be provided with a printout of the ingredients and techniques used for each dish. Then we naturally move on to leaning a couple pranayama (breath control) exercises that helps with regulating the flow of energy within the body.
The tools you offerred were quite literally the tools to set the foundations for healthy enriching relationships. Sooner or later our happiness turns into dissatisfaction, and we find ourselves engaged in the pursuit of more worldly pleasures. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore, the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external circumstances. Animals can enjoy food and sex, find homes, hoard wealth, subdue their enemies, and protect their family; but they cannot completely eliminate suffering and attain lasting happiness.
There will be an opportunity to discuss the meditation and share your experience with others. I have a Bachelors degree in sociology, a Masters in Public Administration and a Ph.D in alternative health care. You'll learn a simple but highly effective and systematic meditation technique that takes you within yourself and brings you back out. If you are keen to learn about meditation and to make a change in your life that you can sustain, you'll enjoy these classes. You find yourself moving into a state of relaxation that is deeper than you had been able to achieve before.

You attain realisation that you really are progressing and achieving what you desire with meditation. You deepen and improve your practice within the class so that you can meditate easily outside of the class. With repeated classes you are able to reach progressively deeper levels of relaxation, sublime control over your emotions, plus even greater levels of focus and concentration. Thus far, we’ve explored sitting in lotus, walking meditation, using the crystal bowl to open the third eye, and staring at a candle flame. Students have reported deeper and more profound meditations in the class than they’ve ever had before. We hope you’ll join us in one or both of these classes to strengthen your body, de-stress, and connect with your inner guidance. In this hands on class, you'll learn about the various spices and the simple methods used to create delicious Indian vegetarian dishes.
The class then concludes with a guided meditation session which implements both the chanting and breath control exercises as well. Apart from your practical words of wisdom, you speak a language that flows from your presence and the feeling that you are aligned with your purpose, and not affected by modern ADD. Directly or indirectly, worldly pleasures cause us mental and physical suffering by stimulating attachment, jealousy, and frustration.
If our mind is pure and peaceful we'll be happy, regardless of our external conditions, but if it is impure and unpeaceful, we will never find happiness, no matter how much we try to change our external conditions. It would be a great shame if we were to use our precious human life only to achieve results that even animals can achieve. The steps for the meditation including the goal is clearly outlined allowing everyone to easily follow even if you are a beginner. You can then work with your own energy more effectively at home, work or wherever as a result. So through your practice within the meditation class you become able to control your life on a deeper level.
After our cooking extravaganza we will partake in these sumptuous dishes and for those of you that are keen to learn the age old art of eating with your hands this will be the perfect opportunity. If we wish to avoid such a wasted life and fulfill the real purpose of being born human we must devote ourselves to the practice of Lamrim (The Stages of the Path to Enlightenment).
I have taught Tai Chi and other specific health exercises at Adult Education centers, retirement communities, and privately. I can teach with confidence shamatha as it relates to The Great Perfection, the four applications of Mindfulness and other specific techniques. My teaching technique is to teach at the level of the student using their life experience as a reference when giving meditation instruction.
