Meditation

“The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this lifetime.” ― Sogyal Rinpoche

“In a general sense, meditation allows us to access the mind’s innate qualities of peace and serenity. Eventually, these experiences become a living reality and our happiness is no longer dependent on the fluctuating conditions of the world around us. Meditation can also be used to cultivate certain qualities, such as compassion or wisdom, and also to address specific problems, such as destructive emotional patterns, chronic illness, and challenging relationship issues. The point of meditation is not to escape such situations, but rather to see that everything we experience can be transformed into a source of joy through the practice of meditation.” –Tergar International Meditation Community, Meditation FAQ’s

Meditation at YogaFish

Free Meditation Classes: YogaFish offers two free meditation and pranayama (yogic breathing) classes each week. Join Kelly on Tuesdays at 4:30 or Wednesdays at 4:00. The style of meditation we teach is in the Tibetan Buddhist style, calming the mind to access a stable and vivid awareness that is the very essence of our life experience.

The Joy of Living Meditation Group:  Our meditation group meets on the first and third Sunday of every month from 4-5:30 PM. Based on the New York Times Best-selling book The Joy of Living by  Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, our group explores meditation techniques designed to calm the mind, open the heart, and awaken wisdom. We are one of many groups world-wide that meet regularly. Each meeting’s curriculum comes from the Tergar Meditation Community, under Rinpoche’s direction and includes guided meditation and discussion. No experience is required to participate! Please drop in or email laura @ YogaFishStuart.com with any questions.
