Scientific studies have shown that meditation boosts self-awareness, memory and empathy. This course contains practical guidelines on physical, mental and philosophical aspects of meditation.

Workshop Topics

  • Being aware of physical sensations: a balanced meditation posture brings the focus to the here and now
  • Breath meditation: one-pointedness of mind through meditative pranayama techniques
  • Emptying the mind: mental relaxation and mindfulness exercises
  • Concentration on positive values: this creates new, uplifting grooves in the mind that gradually replace negative feelings and moods
  • Visualisation: concentration exercises on light, colours and shapes. Mental images become clearer and more exact
  • Sound meditation: mantra chanting and mental mantra repetition have a harmonising effect on the mind
  • Meditation@home: how and why continuing your meditation practice at home
  • Scientific facts about meditation

With individual tips regarding place, time, posture, meditation technique, as well as a recommended reading list. Mantra initiation is optional.
