"Reflective Meditation": Ypsilanti District Library.

  community member   < less

This 4-week online class, taught over Zoom by Erica Dutton of SkyGardens Meditation, will provide the fundamentals of Reflective Meditation which is an open, receptive, gentle practice of awareness. Beginners are welcome! If you already have a meditation practice, you can continue it in this class and learn 2 additional steps that are part of Reflective Meditation and enhance any practice. Reflective Meditation is based on the early teachings of the Buddha and is more student wisdom oriented than teacher wisdom oriented. This meditation encourages gentleness, curiosity, and permission to explore. The goal is to help the student develop their own practice. Classes will be held August 7, 14, 21, and 28. The 4 classes build on each other, so attendance at all 4 is highly recommended. Registration required; email havens@ypsilibrary.org, call 734-482-4110 x 2411, or register at https://www.ypsilibrary.org/event/reflective-meditation/2020-08-07/

Tuesday

 7-8:15 p.m. 

Canceled: "Sacred Cacao Ceremony": Verapose Yoga & Meditation House.

  community member   < less Sacred Cacao

Drinking sacred cacao in ceremony is considered spiritual medicine by many indigenous cultures around the world. As we sit together in a small group and consume this sacred beverage, practice mindfulness, participate in guided meditation with intention in a backdrop of sacred sound, our soul is nourished, our heart opens and we experience greater spaciousness. It is a time for deep reflection and connection. The sacred cacao is prepared with intention, prayer and love.
Group size limited to 10 participants. Pre-registration required.
Please arrive 10 minutes early, and bring a meditation cushion an optional shawl/blanket. Fast 3 hours prior and arrive hydrated. Class is upstairs.
Facilitated by Victoria Schon.
Verapose Yoga & Meditation House, 3173 Baker Road, Dexter. $25. victoria@veraposeyoga.com www.veraposeyoga.com/events [map]
