Dhyana (Meditation) is one of the most important practices for yoga students. Most people have an image of someone sitting quietly with their eyes closed, but what really happens inside? How do we stop our mind from chatting? What does it feel like when you’re finally able to still the mind? And what exactly is the purpose of meditation?
These and many other questions will be addressed during this half-day workshop dedicated to meditation. Acharya Hersh Khetarpal will not only distill the philosophy and techniques for meditation, but there will also be multiple practice sessions.
This workshop is suitable for beginners interested in an introduction, as well as experienced students hoping to heighten their understanding and practice.
