Meditation Revealed Online
With Bernie Clark & Nathalie Keiller
We are happy to announce that Meditation Revealed will be offered on-line from June 13-19, 2022. Join us live, or watch the recordings whenever it is convenient.
This course will examine what meditation is, why we do it and how to do it, from a variety of viewpoints: From Eastern Yogic and Buddhist views to Western Philosophy and Psychotherapy. The course will include training in Deep Meditation to give the student an experiential basis for the practice of meditation. This course will be a balance of theory and praxis but the course will also delve deeply into the context of both yoga and meditation and will show how this has evolved over the millennia. Understanding the historical context of these practices will help you adopt and adapt meditation to what you need for our modern times.
Yoga Room Podcast
Science can have many different meanings. We see this plainly in references to “the science of yoga,” which might point to methodologically rigorous studies or fanciful – and perhaps deeply meaningful – stories about anything and everything in life. We can also appreciate that such stories can be usefully understood and applied in our lives as myths, much as suggested in the work of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Sally Kempton, and in the tapestry of stories from the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, and Ramayana.
In this episode, Mark Stephens and Bernie Clark discuss these topics both generally and in specific relation to new and different ideas about the human body, yoga practice, teaching yoga, and living a good life.
