Meditations for Holiday Stress
The holidays are great and all, but there’s no denying that this time of year can also be stress-a-palooza for many people. Between the shopping, the sugar, the awkward social situations, busyness, and possible family tension, it’s hard to stay sane and centered—and that’s where meditation comes in. Meditation is the most powerful stress-relieving tool we have. In high demand times, it’s even more important to get really regular with your meditation practice-but it seems to be the first thing that slips. During our sessions for November/December, we’ll be looking at techniques (even quick ones) that we can use for typical scenarios like traveling delays or criticism from a family member.
This class provides various pathways one can use for their meditation practice. This comes from the idea, “The best meditation is the meditation that works for you, at this stage in your life.” Two techniques will be presented each week.
Our Pathways to Meditation class periodic series: At times we will look at the idea of how we can apply visualization and at other times mindfulness. Sometimes our meditation experiences will be focused on loving-kindness or enhanced with singing bowls used for relaxation. Techniques may include: walking meditation with our portable labyrinth, Chakra meditation, mantra meditation, spiritual meditation, breath-focused meditation, guided meditation, contemplation, self-inquiry and “I Am” meditation, journal meditation, inner vision and more.
Sessions last about 60 minutes
