Deepening Your Meditation Practice/Exploring the Art of Teaching
with Margaret Fletcher
class has been postponed until the Fall of 2012.
Almost all yoga practiced now in the West can trace its roots back to the time-tested teachings captured in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. In his concise and precise text, Patanjali lays out a transformative way of seeing and working with your experience of yourself and the world. These instructions provide us with a structured means for waking up from the commonly held, limited world/life view that prevents us from living as aliveness and awakeness. In this course we will look at elements of practice from all the steps that Patanjali invites us to use, including personal responsibility and ethics, sitting practice and the stages of meditation. Our goal: to learn the sutras and how to use them toward optimizing our experience of life on and off the cushion. The course will include some reading and writing and a short daily practice between weekly meetings. Please join Margaret Fletcher and explore the deep wisdom and practical usefulness of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
If you would like to build on your own meditation practice, or begin learning how to guide others in meditation, your participation is welcomed. Experience with yoga postures and/or meditation is required for the class, either an existing practice or a history of a previous practice coupled with a desire to re-establish. Class will include a commitment to home practice, as well as some study and structured inquiry. Upon registration, please contact Margaret Fletcher by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will ask you to complete a brief questionnaire prior to the start of the class. There will be a minimum of 4 participants needed to hold the class. If interest continues, the class will continue to meet together in additional sessions periodically.
