I Ching Meditation – Classes for the Beginner
with Kim Young – Beginning February 2013. Open to the Community
The principles in this unique style of meditation are derived from the Oracle of the I Ching. Meditation is central to the practice the I Ching, most importantly as a person’s ability to turn inward and connect with their body and psyche. I Ching meditation practice is a type of personal inner therapy or self-healing by restoring a relationship to one’s inner truth (also known as the DNA).
Fee: sliding scale: $3-10 (free to Senior Center Volunteers)
Date & Time: TBA throughout the year.
Here’s a brief look at some of the meditations and the themes we’ll be exploring in class:
1. Mind Cleansing – A helpful introduction to meditation as the basis for one’s inner peace and clarity.
2. The Heart Meditation – This meditation is helpful when we lack energy or have obstructed the heart-chi.
3. Deprogramming and the Inner No – Removing false ideas and negative emotions are what help reveal the true self through our natural boundaries and common sense.
4. Centering – Centering is a helpful meditation by itself and also as a prerequisite for receiving insight into a specific concern.
5. Listening to the Body – The body has more knowledge than the mind alone. Listening to the body is the key to self-knowledge and health.
6. The True Self – The only thing we have to fear is not experiencing the joy of who we truly are. Everyone has a true, whole and positive self, but many have yet to discover the joy of how that feels.
