Healing Through Meditation Classes
“Loving Ourselves and Others”
Monday Evenings, 6:30pm to 9:00pm
November 5th to December 10th (Includes Sat. Class Dec. 1st 9:30am to 1:00pm)
“We could look the whole world over and never find anyone more deserving of love than ourselves” Buddha
In this course we will be primarily learning and exploring together the heartful practices of Lovingkindness and Compassion, both of which are very healing and connect us with our own capacity to love ourselves and others. So often we find that we are not able to respond to ourselves with kindness and understanding, instead falling into habits of judgment, comparison and anger. Within us we have this innate capacity to love unconditionally, but often we’ve lost contact with this beautiful quality of heart. Through working with lovingkindness and compassion practices we come home to ourselves discovering our own goodness and humanity. In the process we also naturally discover our unconditional love for others. This course if for beginners as well as those people who have meditation practice.
“Foundational Mindfulness Meditation
Tuesday Evenings, 6:30pm to 9:30pm,
November 6th to December 11th (Includes Sat. Class Nov. 17th 9:30am to 1:00pm)
Mindfulness meditation has been shown to be a very powerful and supportive practice in helping us to face difficulty in our lives. Often our responses to illness and pain are avoidance or denial; our tendency is to run away from our experience. Unfortunately, when we do this, we are also limiting our power to grow and change. Now more than ever, it is being recognized that there is a fundamental unity of body and mind. Mindfulness gives us a tool that allows us to be actively involved in our own healing process. In this practice, you learn how to cultivate awareness of your body and mind, allowing you to be more connected with your own experience. In this process, you can discover your own often hidden capacity to face life's challenges. Mindfulness practice helps you uncover a source of self-understanding and compassion that lies naturally within you.
Each of these classes includes meditation instructions and practice, including individual guidance by Dana, and a theme and discussion related to integration of mindfulness or lovingkindness into our daily lives. As part of this course you are encouraged to practice this meditation daily for the duration of the course. You will be given meditation recordings support your practice at home. For participants of the mindfulness course you will be given a resource book.
Dana has been practicing Insight Meditation since 1988. In 1993 she founded, and is still much involved with, the Regina Insight Meditation Community. For the past fifteen years she has been teaching Healing Through Meditation classes in Regina. She is trained in group facilitation skills and has a Social Work Certificate. Dana’s warmth and generosity of heart create a safe and supportive learning environment.
