‘Learn to meditate’ A study day and online course in somatic meditation.
A six week home study Course of guided meditations.
With support through ongoing discussions with other attendees and a post course phone call with Jess.
Learning to meditate takes much longer than one day...So I have designed this course as a one day training with course work through guided meditations to offer you the steps, instruction and support to establish a daily meditation practice at home. So you can learn the foundations and get to know the meditations with me and an online study group, so you can build the confidence to meditate by yourself.
I’m offering this course at the beginning of December so you can do the course work over christmas and new year and go into next year with an established meditation practice that will support your whole life.
Having a regular meditation practice will support your life in many deep and transformative ways. Research continues to show that meditation is essential for our mental and physical health. Its a practice that will improve your life in quality and longevity.
Meditation is and can be very enjoyable and even addictive. Once you have an established practice you will never look back.
But…Learning to meditate is difficult, challenging, it brings up lots of resistance and can be very confronting. So it requires really good instruction, support and lots of practice.
I have designed this course to include not just a study day where you learn each meditation but also video recordings of the six meditations that are to be practiced in succession. Each week you will also have access to 3 teachings and instructions about the meditation. Each practice builds on the meditators previous experience and abilities. So you can learn the important foundational principals of meditation and develop a deep and rich practice that will allow you to meditate for 30 to 40 mins a day uninterrupted and really enjoy it!
These recordings are designed to be practiced once a day and will be available online, so you can listen to them when ever you want to and your practice into your daily life.
On the Saturday’s workshop we will spend much of the day learning each of the six meditations. With plenty of time for discussion, questions and enquiry into what will be your shared but unique experience.
All the meditations taught are ‘somatic’ meaning they are meditations that connect you with your body. Over half of these practices/meditations are taught lying down, so you don’t need to be flexible and comfortable sitting up for hours.
Yoga experience is a requirement for this course. Because yoga is the most effective foundation for Meditation to grow from. You do not need to be flexible and able to stand on your head, but you will need to have had recent experience in connecting with your body and breath.
Cost: €100 for workshop and all online course material.
At: Flow Yoga Centre, Clonakilty.

Feedback from a previous workshop: "I thoroughly enjoyed the Day! Every aspect of it was interesting & challenging but so rewarding all at the same time. You really opened my eyes to the asana's through the adduction exercise as I've always concentrated on getting the look of the posture right rather than the feel. I also found the blind-fold exercise a revelation as I could feel my alignment was better once I stopped looking outwards. I have to say that if it was at all possible for me to get to your regular classes I would be a regular student". Tina Horgan.
