Introduction to Ascension Meditation
September 19 // 6-8pm
Join Suharta in this introduction to Ascension Meditation.
This is a prelude to the upcoming 3-day Ascension Meditation course and will include a screening of the documentary 'A Mindful Choice' followed by a discussion and any questions you may have.
'Before I learnt to meditate, I didn’t really see any benefit in practicing meditation, or at least that’s what my opinion or belief about what meditation actually was! I really didn’t think it was for me.
Most of my adult life, I knew there was something more than the busy, demanding, stressful life I was living.. I remembered what life was like with that child-like freedom, wonder and awe we all had when we were really young.
After the experience of learning Ascension meditation, I noticed I was calmer, less reactive, happier for no reason, and more present; which is essentially what meditation is about. In that I could see my pesky mind chatter, and my mind was always informing me of what I should or shouldn’t do, and it had a lot of judgements, assessments and opinions about everything! I never thought it possible to live life beyond the surface limitations of the mind, and so I jumped in and became an Ishaya teacher, and never looked back.
The mind can never comprehend the peace, love, joy, freedom that is available to ALL us, and it is our birthright.
What I loved about the course when I did it, was that nothing was required of me, in fact, what I was doing when I meditated, was letting go of unconscious, limiting beliefs, and becoming more conscious. And that made living life more peaceful, fluid and effortless.
Now I have the privilege of teaching to those who have a desire for more, I teach to the general public, schools, prisoners, or whoever hears the message and has a desire to live life beyond the mind limiting beliefs, with this simple, ancient and effortless practice.'
More About Ascension Meditation:
Ascension techniques are perfect for the busy mind. They can be practiced sitting comfortably in a chair with your eyes closed and, perhaps uniquely among meditative practices, can also be used with your eyes-open while you are engaged in your daily activities. This helps maintain a more positive, peaceful and creative attitude as you go about your day.
