In addition to simply Just Sitting, these meditation classes will alternate between practicing one of two meditations that traditionally compliment each other – the Mindfulness of Breathing and the Development of Loving-kindness. These meditations were popularized by Shakyamuni Buddha, and Patanjali, and are some of the most common non-religious meditation practices used all across Asia.
The Mindfulness of Breathing meditation gives you the tools to anchor your experience on the kinetic sensation of the breath, allowing for increased focus within a broader context of empathetic awareness. This method of mind training was taught and practiced long before the historical Buddha cultivated it on the night of his Awakening. By learning this simple practice, you become connected with a long and venerable tradition.
The Development of Loving-kindness meditation changes neural pathways toward experiences that normally lead to reactive emotions, through setting aside time to develop loving-kindess toward oneself and others. Loving-kindness is considered the root emotion for all higher states of consciousness in ancient Indian psychology. It is also one of only two universally prescribed meditations in the Buddhist tradition, and is the first meditation practice Patanjali recommends for yogis.
