Learn to Meditate with Caryn Kilback Next held on Tue, Nov 21, 2017 at 7:10 am - 7:50 am
This enrollment runs from Tue Nov 7, 2017 - Thu Dec 14, 2017
Learn the Vedic approach to meditation with Caryn Kilback, co-founder of Instill Meditation, and find out how you can turn a tool into a practice! Meditation is a practice of ‘incremental change applied consistently over time’ and is most effective when practiced daily. In a similar manner to how a personal trainer motivates and educates you to begin a workout regimen, spending more time with an educated instructor while establishing a routine can jump-start its effectiveness. More people than ever before are turning to meditation, and as the demands of modern day living increase, people are looking for a sustainable way to cope with daily pressures and responsibilities, while still functioning at the top of their game. Meditation is considered to be the number one tool for stress reduction, as well as enhanced creativity, clarity and consciousness.
 
Hosted twice a week over the duration of six weeks, this course is designed to help you gain confidence, build consistency, and leave as a self-sufficient meditator no matter your skill level. This series is designed to take you through an intelligent progression of different focuses and themes, eventually setting into a rhythm of consistent practice. In the first week’s sessions you will receive a mantra and learn the fundamental mechanics of an effective meditation practice rooted in Vedic Meditation. Over the following weekly sessions we will then build upon and refine your practice while taking you deeper into meditation’s effects on topics such as; stress and its impact, the brain, creativity and intuition, as well as the mind-body connection. Expect to come out of this series with a working knowledge of this meditation technique and the confidence required to continue establishing a daily meditation practice on your own.

Note: Registrants receive Instill’s Meditation Journal (retail value of $20) and access to their online learning Stillness Vault.

Alongside the physical postures, we use the tools of mindful meditation based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program such a guided breathing techniques and guided body scans. Mindful meditation is an essential part of rehabilitation as it calms the chatter of the mind and brings awareness back to the body in present time with compassion and curiosity.

An Evening of Timelessness with Tanis Fishman Fri, Nov 24, 2017 at 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
 
 
There is a paradoxal saying in taoism wei wu wei which means "action without action" or "effortless doing". Sometimes it's necessary to pause and rest in stillness, in order to expand perspective beyond the limited ego mind and see clearly and know what the next step of action is. Tracking linear time in timelessness is an ancient practice that is incredibly relevant and helpful today.
 
Through the use of gentle movement, Yoga nidra and meditation, we will expand the window of an alpha brain state, where inner stillness and presence reside. The mystics have said, that this state of attention is when the inner guru speaks.
