A comprehensive and unique training program that synthesizes science and spirituality. Includes a 2 day retreat in Dunnville, ON.
This program will enhance your personal meditation practice and will give you an in-depth understanding of the art and science of a variety of meditation techniques to experience peace in daily living.
There are many approaches to understand the art and science of meditation. Our approach is through Naturality. Naturality is to live according to our nature. Naturality approach is neither religious nor spiritual but natural; means after learning the basics of meditation techniques and practices you can discover your unique way of meditating according to your natural personality. It’s the easiest way to practice meditation. The goal is to become free from fear and guilt and live with peace, passion and bliss. In Naturality, there is a synthesis of the internal and external nature.
From the Naturality point of view, meditation is relaxation, awareness and expansion of awareness. The practice of meditation promotes emotional healing, and can be helpful for those suffering from a variety of acute and chronic health problems including stress-related disorders, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. As the practice deepens, we discover our natural self and inner guru or teacher, and eventually experience expansive mind and stillness.
Whether you are a practitioner of meditation or a beginner, this program will deepen your own meditation practice, and will also enable you to teach meditation to individuals and groups.
Naturality Meditation Facilitator Training Program is in association with the Canadian Yoga Alliance.
