Intro to Meditation & Full Moon Meditation Workshop with Betty Jones @ XENXEN!
March 2 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Betty Jones offers a meditation practice known as Guru Dev’s Meditation. This meditation is based on the ancient Vedic Science of Mantra, and is part of the Vedic-based curriculum taught by Betty at the Saraswati School of Meditation and Wellness, Las Vegas. Course offerings include silent deep meditation where we transcend mind; as well as silent and group japa (spiritual practices involving mantra), and various corrective remedial measures as specified by the Vedic masters of Jyotish (Science of Light) and Ayurveda (Science of Life). The practices taught at the School of Meditation are not new, but have been around for over 5,000 years. They were brought to the West by a number of great Indian gurus and saints, three of whom Betty spent many years under direct tutelage.
The number one contributing factor for ill health, dissatisfaction and disease is stress; and the most popular remedy for dissolving stress is meditation. There are a myriad of meditation practices available today, such as mindfulness, affirmation, visualization and transcending, to name just a few – and meditation is generally grouped into three categories: concentration, contemplation and transcending. Concentration and contemplation practices use some degree of effort; they engage the mind and keep it active. Transcending practices do not require effort; but use the natural tendency of the mind, together with the use of mantra (subtle, life-supporting vibration). Think of the art of diving, where you take a correct angle and utilize gravity to do the rest!
The meditation Betty teaches does not require any changes in diet, lifestyle or beliefs, and the benefits of the unique, deep state of restful alertness provided have been borne out in a myriad of scientific studies, indicating that it allows the body to heal and balance, slow the aging process, balance blood pressure, recover from sleep deprivation, treat addictions and trauma (PTSD), improve mental focus and increase emotional happiness. This meditation is generally practiced for 20 minutes twice daily, sitting comfortably with eyes closed. Anyone can learn to meditate, from children ages five and up. This Introductory to Meditation is a great way to take the first steps in learning how you can begin your own meditation practice.
On the Full Moon, the spiritual energies are at their height. It is a time when our own energies are more active and the energies around us become more focused. Therefore, mantras that are chanted during the full moon are more easily integrated into our own system, and produce a more powerful, peaceful effect around us for the well-being of all. Join us for this empowering Workshop at XENXEN to experience this first hand with Betty.
Please bring a mat and a pillow and/or blanket to support your back throughout the workshop. Please bring water as well.
We look forward to seeing everyone in studio for this very exciting workshop! If you have any questions, please give us a call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
