Sadhana for Winter Solstice

With Kim Zombik

December 21st, 2023
7 pm to 8.30 pm

 

At the winter solstice, we follow the path of transformation through the darkness into the light of a new beginning. We go through a cycle of perpetual motion: the year goes from light to dark to light. Our attention, our energy, the body, the nervous system, our thoughts, our whole lives, never separated from the cycles of time itself, go like this: Light, dark, light. Let us join this winter solstice to honor the return of precious light with restorative yoga, the sound of singing bowls and meditation.

A portal towards awakening 2: IRest Yoga Nidra

With Kim Zombik
Sundays, from 10:00 am to 11:15 am
January 28th to February 25th, 2024

 

You may have felt the sensation when you are half asleep, relaxed and strangely feeling like your brain is dozing off. Such a state of consciousness, between being awake and sleeping, is a state where Yoga Nidra can bring you.
It is a systematic practice of shifting awareness from our outer world to the inner world to bring us to a state of deep sleep where our senses, intellect and spirit relax. We free ourselves from the concepts of time, space and reason. When this happens, brain activity decreases and the body goes into a healing state. Therefore, it is also said that one hour of Yoga Nidra can give the same benefit as four hours of sleep. When the body enters a state of healing, you can eliminate toxins at the cellular level, refresh the mind, and remove baggage from the subconscious.
Benefits include more serenity and resilience, less irritability, better quality sleep, better concentration, reduced feelings of stress and decreased stress hormone secretion.
Although the practice of Yoga Nidra provides deep relaxation, it is not just a method of relaxation. Yoga Nidra is a specific state of internal consciousness that has the potential to guide our awareness to our most authentic and true selves.

Throughout the 5 week session, we will tap into the deep value of intentionality and our heartfelt desire. (sankalpa). We will learn the last 5 steps of a 10-step protocol that helps you meet and greet every moment of your life with a sense of equanimity and balance. No previous experience necessary.

January 24th to March 13th, 2024
Second session on March 27th to May 8th, 2024

 

This course aims to establish the foundations of mindfulness meditation with the Unified Mindfulness system, a clear, precise and comprehensive approach to meditation. The practice of meditation is defined in this system as the development of three complementary attentional skills: concentration, sensory clarity and equanimity.

The program for this session will present five meditation techniques and how to use them according to the needs, interests, and opportunities that arise in our lives. We will also learn how to practice these techniques in action in our daily lives, how to deal with obstacles that may arise in meditation and how to grow and deepen our practice over time.

Including teachings on techniques and strategies, guided meditations, and periods for discussions about practice, this highly interactive course aims to make the practice of mindfulness meditation accessible to all and to debunk myths that hinder its practice.

Both those who have never practiced meditation and experienced meditators who wish to deepen their practice are welcome!
