Meditation Essentials – 8 Week Foundational Course
Saturday 24th April – Saturday 12th June, held in studio at The Innate Connection, Croydon
A new foundational course in meditation from Looking Inwards on the essentials of a supportive and dynamic meditation practice, drawing from the Still-mind meditation tradition. Meditation Essentials will deepen your skills in:
- Understanding of mental processes
- Physical and emotional embodiment
Over 8 weeks, students move through facilitated group classes and guided coursework in journal and workbook form, drawing from the philosophies of Still-mind and Nondualism. A required commitment for the course duration is a daily meditation practice of the student’s own creation. This serves as a precious learning integration of new concepts, and groundwork for a lifelong skill.
Assisted by a diverse range of core meditation and mindfulness texts, the group build deeper insight on their unique personal path while fine-tuning their connection to fulfilment and happiness. In meditative life, Looking Inwards believes this happens through balancing ego-driven motivations, and altruistic motivations.
The Meditation Essentials weekly coursework themes:
- STILLNESS NATURE
- SUPPORTIVE DISCIPLINE
- BODY CUES
- PEACE EXTERNALISED
- INSEPARABLE SELF
- HEALTHY TOLERANCE
- LOVING PURPOSE
- MEDITATIVE FRUITION
The course’s structured, firm-footed practices and processes holistically address the diverse human experience, and honour your innate potential to trace, meet, then understand issues at their core. Offered in small groups of 4-5 people, this engaging classroom format is treasured by Looking Inwards’ students as being equally invigorating and challenging. This inclusive space allows for stunning growth, all in the support of likeminded community and warm presence and mentorship of Senior Meditation Teacher, Tracy Hambly.
This course is designed for people seeking:
- Thoughtful discussion with deep listening
- Calming, open, kind learning space
- Sustainable tools for daily meditation practice
- Realism-based teachings
- Specific self-inquiry skills for practitioner or professional application
Enjoy the well-supported benefits that a committed meditation practice can bring, including positive mental health, knowledge of thought processes, strengthened emotional resilience and intelligence, self-awareness, and reduced stress, anxiety, and depression.
