Restorative Meditation

Life Force Project

Led by Sibyl Buck

Make yourself comfortable and be guided into deep relaxation and meditation. Specific language is used to help you move past the spinning movement of your mind, and into the deeper dimensions of your being, out past the temporal details of your life, which pull you out of the moment. Even if you find a lot of mental noise when you attempt meditation, combining your practice with restorative yoga will help you to arrive in the ever-present peace within yourself, deeper than the layer of mental movement that distracts you. Using props that can be found around the house, you'll create a comfortable position for your body, and release each body part individually before delving deeper. Breath techniques are used to help bring balance to the body and mind. Namaste.

Sacred Sexuality for Women - Meditation

April Laliberte

Once a woman has fully grasped her feminine nature, she blossoms, and can share that knowledge and beauty with others.

This powerful meditation will help you clear your 2nd Chakra and embrace your sacred sexual nature. Although this meditation is geared towards women, men can benefit from practicing it as well.

This meditation will take you further along your evolutionary path. We can do yoga all day long, but until you start to address what is holding you back in your life, you will not progress. We, as a human race loose our mastery at the level of sexuality. The womb space is there for women to reclaim. This meditation will not be for everyone, but after doing the meditation notice how you feel--you might have that ah-ha moment you were looking for!

Spring Into Mindfulness!

Jahna Perricone, CMF

Welcome to ‘Spring Into Mindfulness! A Beginners Guide to Mindful Meditation’.

Mindfulness is bringing our attention to the present moment with openness and curiosity and a kind willingness to be with what is. In these meditations you will learn how to practice mindfulness, cultivate focus, equanimity, compassion and gain a greater sense of happiness. If you are fairly new to meditation you might want to begin with the shorter practices and stay with them for a while. As you feel more comfortable with these you can begin to explore the longer selections.

Allowing yourself to learn, practice and grow through this experience is one of the healthiest choices you can make for your physical, emotional and mental health! Mindfulness is accessible to anyone! All you need is the willingness to be present with yourself in the moment and allow the process to unfold.

Mindfulness has proven to benefit our mental, emotional and physical health. The latest studies in neuroscience have shown that mindfulness can lower blood pressure and stress hormones, such as cortisol, it can increase the quality of sleep and boost the immune system. When implemented in schools, mindfulness has shown to improve test scores and student’s grades, as well as increasing the ability to focus and regulate emotions. The participants also experienced decreases in anxiety and depression.

According to Dr. Michael Irwin, Director of the Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology at UCLA, it has these effects because it “changes how the brain regulates the stress pathways from the brain to the body.” Recent studies have shown significant changes in brain density in those attending an eight-week mindfulness course. MRI scans of the brain revealed that the amygdala, the brain’s “fight or flight” center, decreased in density while the pre-frontal cortex, known to deal with executive brain functioning such as awareness, concentration and decision making, increased in density. It was found that mindfulness affects the way these two regions interact with other parts of the brain: the “functional connectivity” between the amygdala and the rest of the brain decreased in strength while the connections between the pre-fontal cortex and the rest of the brain grew stronger.

As you practice the mindful meditations in this series, you will begin to experience increased calm and heightened awareness of your reactions and surroundings. Over time, you will be able to regulate your reactivity and emotions with finer ease and control. You might become more aware of your thoughts and how they affect your sense of being thereby increasing your ability to choose what you decide to focus on.

Over all, I hope you experience a greater sense of vitality, peace and well-being as we travel this journey together.

To learn more about mindfulness practices and its applications, please visit the Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC) at UCLA : http://marc.ucla.edu Here you will find online mindful meditation classes as well the latest neuroscience relating to mindfulness practices.
