Continuing Education for Meditation Instructors: Weekend Two

The second in a series of three weekend trainings that are designed as continuing education for already authorized Meditation Instructors, as well as meditation practitioners who are interested in developing as Meditation Instructors. Each weekend is designed to support those interested in sharing the practice of meditation with others to cultivate the understanding and skills to assist others along their meditation path. 

Weekend two will focus on embodiment—both generally and in meditation practice. The following topics will be discussed, as well as how to convey a sense of the experience of embodiment to others and how to guide people towards being embodied in their meditation practice:

  • An overview of Mindfulness of Body
  • Discovering ease and joy in the physical posture of meditation 
  • Connecting our bodies to the body of the earth and the elements of our natural world
  • Feeling the energy of emotions in your body and holding your seat, with yourself and others
  • Communicating with others from an embodied place. 
  • Learning to work with physical discomfort through mindfulness of body
  • Exploration and familiarity with the Four Postures of Meditation
  • Tips on how to lead body-centered practices such as shamatha yoga with an emphasis on permission language and adaptations
  • Bringing “mindfulness of body” into everyday life

 

Open to all.
