|In Yogic as well
as Buddhist traditions, meditation is they key to release our suffering and
awaken our hidden potential for unlimited joy, compassion and kindness. In this
retreat, we will explore a realm of meditation that is common to both
traditions - the awareness of breathing.
From the Yogic tradition the multitude of pranayama
techniques strengthen and heighten the awareness of the life force. From the
Buddhist tradition, the Anapanasati Sutra gives instructions on how to use the
breath to enter the realm of profound awareness. Combined together the mix of
Yogic and Buddhist techniques provides an easily accessible yet wonderfully
powerful method to bring us to our own True Self.
|Although we will be
primarily focused on direct experiences of the meditative state, when enhanced
with a moderate amount of asana practice, the integrated experience of
ourselves is one of relaxed energy, joyful and free.
