Everything on the earth
in between and above
Is arising from one effulgent source.
If my thoughts, words and deeds
reflected this complete understanding of unity,
I would be the peace I am seeking in this moment.

- Gayatri Mantra

"Meditation is a solitary exercise in which we seek to connect with our steady inner landscape through focused intention. There is a joy in learning these skills with a group of like-minded seekers. Learning to meditate requires a certain level of bravery - an openness. Nadia creates a safe environment where vulnerability and ambiguity feel possible. Her approach to teaching is serious, yet warm and playful. Meditation methods are as varied as people - and Nadia will help you to explore them all." 
B.E., Chelmsford.

How do we find balance in the midst of chaos?  Can we feel calm and centered when the opposite surrounds us?  Meditation means to sit with;  to learn to sit with what is without becoming that.  Meditation is also a means and not and end to itself:  it's a vehicle to awakening, to becoming more conscious, more human, more real.  When we orient ourselves toward the changeless, we may be transformed.  In this series, the four elements will provide the doorway into that "untarnished place", as the Sufis call it. 

The benefits of meditation are numerous:

  • improved mood
  • decreased cortical thinning due to age
  • increased attention, memory, emotional regulation
  • decreased stress related cortisol
  • increased immune system
  • has been found to help with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, PMS, chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, phobias and eating disorders
  • a sense of inner balance and calm

The intention for this class is to:
  • initiate and continue to develop a meditation discourse that has continuity and is part of the yoga tradition
  • develop a sustainable daily practice
  • be part of a group for support and encouragement
  • learn techniques that work for you, that you love and that provide doorways into the inner life

Each class will include:
  • 10 min yoga warm-up
  • Pranayama (breath regulation) to support meditative practice
  • Guided meditations on a particular topic
  • Group sharing
  • Readings and quotes pertinent to the topic
  • Class recordings to support your practice
