The Next Workshop Theme is: Sleep and Dream Yoga
The theme of Sleep and Dream Yoga will be split into two parts.
Part 1: May 31.
Part 2: June 28.
This month's workshop continues from last months theme of Death, Dying, Loss & Impermanence
The main topics covered will be:
*The transitions between waking, sleeping and reawakening.
*Explanation of the seamless continuum of spiritual practices through changing states of consciousness.
*Priming the mind before sleep, as preparation for dreamwork.
*Explanation of the significance of Sleep and Dream yoga with relation to death and the death-related meditation and yoga practices.
After the opening teaching (described above), Zeena guides the group through a mantra chanting session, utilizing both struck (audible sound vibration resulting from friction between or striking of two forms of matter) and unstruck (thought vibration/the sound of the celestial realm) mantra meditation practices.
This month's mantra will be the mantra to Amitabha: Om Ami Dewa Hri
Following the mantra chanting session participants settle into a silent seated meditation of calm-abiding and stilling of the internal monkey-chatter thoughts.
Both the mantra meditation and the meditation of calm-abiding are necessary foundations for all other forms of advanced spiritual practices. When performed together with one's teacher, these meditations build an important connection to the generations of lineage holders who have transmitted the same methods to your own teacher. For this reason, meditation together with the teacher produces stronger results than only meditating alone.
The workshop concludes with a Questions & Answers period.
