Could you benefit from a little more calm in your life? A little more peace? How about a little more joy in your life? If you answered yes to any of those questions, this 6-week class may be for you!
In these six weeks we will Ease on Down the Road of meditation a little further. You will be introduced to the concept of perceptual positions. Take the basics of meditation that you have learned and put them to use as we engage with more visualization and meditation hacks that I am looking forward to sharing with you!
WHEN: Thursdays 6:15-7p (April 2nd - May 7th)
WHERE: The Pearl
FACILITATED BY: Sara Oswald
LEVEL: Mid. Meditation experience is recommended.
We will be exploring and playing with perceptual positions and splitting your attention while using them. There are four perceptual positions: self, other, observer and omni and we will playfully see what they are about and how when we use them, we can gain traction in different areas of our lives beyond the meditation practice. Remember, meditation is an anchor and a resource for living our lives beyond the actual sitting.
When I looked up the definition of “perception” in the dictionary this is what I read:
-the state of being or process of becoming aware of something through the senses
-a way of regarding , understanding or interpreting something; a mental impression
Our perception is a way of understanding, of becoming aware, of interpreting an internal or external event through our senses. Add in “position” and we are talking about a location and if we personalize that location we have the four perceptual positions of self, other, observer and omni. In other words we have points of view. We see things from our own eyes, through someone else’s eyes, through an uninvolved third person’s eyes and from the all seeing eyes of the Universe, Wholeness, Spirit or however you name that which is bigger than any one individual collective.
- Week One: First Perceptual Position: One's Self
- Week Two: Second Perceptual Position: Other
- Week Three: Third Perceptual Position: Observer
