Guided Meditation and Crystal Bowl Sound Healing with Brian Hilliard
20 September @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30pm on Thursday, repeating until 8 November 2018
In meditation circles, our minds are regarded as the most important thing. It is said:
“Mind itself alone, is the seed of everything,
Samsara and nirvana manifest from it,
Homage to the mind, which is like a wish-fulfilling jewel,
Fulfilling all desired results.”
How to Meditate
The introduction to meditation comprises clear instructions based on a 2,600-year tradition, an unbroken lineage going back to Buddha Shakyamuni. You will first be introduced to the view or understanding of the practice : what problems and challenges do we face in our lives?; How does meditation work to address these issues?; What good results can you expect to achieve through the practice? Then we move on to practical meditation instruction which introduces working with body, breath and thoughts. We practice together for short periods, interspersed with group discussion, which helps to clarify our meditation experience. Finally we discuss how to bring meditation into daily life. The results for those who stick with it is a wonderful change in your life path.
Crystal Sound Bowl Healing
In the second half of our class relax in shavasana as you absorb the pure sounds of the music of alchemy crystal bowls. These rare and beautiful instruments give you the opportunity to direct your healing intentions to whatever sphere you need : emotional, physical, spiritual. Effortlessly mixing this clear resonance with body and intention can produce very deep levels of relaxation and healing. Crystal sound bowl healing is highly recommended for those experience the stress of daily life, and also those who are experiencing the results of serious illness.
