About the event

Join me for an immersive meditation session. This is a taster session for anyone that might be interested in learning to quieten their mind. Get away from the general hustle and bustle of the day, release tension, stress and any thoughts that overwhelm you. Please be aware that you are not alone with these feelings. This will be a small supportive group, where you can discuss your issues. 

We will start the session with a cuppa, a healthy nibble and a natter, followed by several different styles of meditation. To help you find the one that works for you.

This event is limited to 4 people. If you are interested in attending a Dhyana meditation session but are unable to attend this date, please register your interest with me and I can inform you of the next event. If there is enough interest, there might be further ad-hoc events, either daytime or evening.

Things to bring if you are interested in coming: water, meditation pillow or cushions to sit on and a blanket. If you need a chair, then this can be provided for you. But that will be confirmed before the event.

This event will be a between 60-90 minutes (I usually over run!!) 

Cost £10 (including drink and nibbles and a safe space)

What is Dhyana?

Dhyana is the 7th Limb of Yoga. It is described as Meditative absorption, before Dhyana comes Dharana (the 6th limb of Yoga as described by Patangali). Dharana is more likely to be the phase of meditation that we are in.

The transition from Dharana to Dhyana is very subtle but it acts as an important shift in perspective and practice. Dharana is the act of focusing on an object, idea or thought; it’s called active focusing where we put mental effort to keep our attention unscattered. We can’t keep focus unscattered for a longer duration when there is effort working in the process.

When we are able to hold the mind for a longer duration, or Dharana is maintained for a longer time, in a continuous manner without any interruption, that state of mind is called Dhyana.

So, Dharana is the act of focusing and Dhyana is a state of mind which we discover by consistent concentration practice.
