Moving Meditation for Spicy Brains (spring Weds am)
Meditation can develop calm and clarity and concentration. These aren't special places only some can reach; they're skills you can learn. And the "sitting still in silence" part is not required!
That's right -- you can meditate while you move! Don't think you ‘can’t meditate’ because you can’t sit still. This guided moving meditation trains the brain while doing gentle movement from small hand gestures to stretching, walking and dancing.
And don’t worry about HOW you move, there’s not right or wrong here. As we listen to our bodies we learn what works perfectly for us, just as we are right now. No experience required, graceful or unco, everyone is welcome!
Moving mediation is for you if you haven't gotten anywhere with seated meditation yet even though you keep trying. Instead of fighting with your body to keep still, let your body move and use this soothing rhythm to bring you back to centre. The sitting still part is not required. You can get the same skills you get in "regular" meditation without having to sit still in silence. Having your eyes open, letting your body move naturally, and gently moving your attention can settle a scattered brain in the moment and can also help that brain feel less scattered over time.
All adult humans are welcome.
People with neurodiversities are especially encouraged to try it, as are those with trauma responses. This class is for you because you too deserve calmness and clarity in your mind. Classes with too much stillness, silence, breath work, etc. may not be for us but that doesn't mean we miss out on the benefits of meditation. Learn a different way with me.
You don't have to struggle against yourself to feel calm some times. Let it be easy and even fun! Don't take my word for it, give it a go yourself and feel if it works for you.
Each class is $15 casual and includes access to the replays for 48 hours after. Students' names and videos are not included in the recording. There is a discount to buy all 5 classes in the series at once.
There are some sponsored spots available for those who need them, so please let me know if that's you (no proof required, just ask) and I'll send you a separate link.
