Meditation is the way

“Generally we waste our lives, distracted from our true selves, in endless activity. Meditation is the way to bring us back to ourselves, where we can really experience and taste our full being.” 

~ Sogyal Rinpoche

Guided Meditation Saturday Mornings in Charleston

Sometimes we are just ready to learn something that we really want to learn, like guided meditation. Meditation and guided meditation are some of those things that may people have heard about and are very curious to try. But possibly we were told we hard to sit cross legged on the floor. We were supposed to be blissed out. Instead, our legs and back ached!

The reality is that meditation is an inner experience and while some aspects of posture are important, what really matters is that the person is comfortable enough to let go of their body. This means that sitting in a chair with back support is a great way to get started.

Private Meditation Instruction at Meditate Center for Healing Arts in Charleston West Ashley

As well, it is recommended to begin with guided meditation. Allow an experienced teacher to lead you.

Now as far as how to meditate< many think they are suppose to have no thoughts at all and if their minds are churning, then they are way off! But what about a way to let the mind be, but move our consciousness into another part of our being?

This is a technique that we teach here at meditate, to work with consciousness and begin to open the channels within ourselves to bring about the peace that has eluded us. Every Saturday morning, we offer the Charleston spiritual community the chance to sample our Healing Arts Center.

If you enjoy the Saturday Guided Meditation lecture and class, you may feel drawn to our Level 1 Meditation course. In this class, there are instructional lessons as well as a guided meditation every week. Students are also given exercises to practice at home and solidify their new practice.

If the schedule isn’t a good fit for you, consider our online meditation course. It was built from live video footage of the Level 1 Course and includes guided meditation.

We tackle the tough topics such as improving concentration, how to handle an erratic mind, dropping into altered states of consciousness, the repetition needed to establish a regular practice, how commitment plays a role in learning to meditate and deep probing into the outer and inner realms of consciousness.
