ANAM THUBTEN LIVESTREAMED TEACHINGS
May 28, 2017, 1:00pm-3:00pm
Come sit with the Long Island Dharmata Sangha. We meet roughly every two weeks to hear livestreamed teachings from Anam Thubten. The meetings are held in one of two homes in western Long Island (mine or fellow sangha member, Stephanie Cleary’s).
Wednesday May 31, 2017
We'll be doing our monthly Yoga Nidra class. The first half hour of class is standard yoga. The last half hour is Yoga Nidra, which is a powerful guided meditation practice, done lying down.
This practice, Yoga Nidra (Sanskrit: योग निद्रा) is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, during which the body is completely relaxed, but the practitioner is profoundly awake. Relaxation is often mistaken as the intent of Yoga Nidra--but that is incorrect. It's the vehicle your intent uses to bring your deepest desires to fruition.
In Yoga Nidra, the restful state of awareness one experiences is fertile ground for the art of conscious creation. Yoga nidra is being used worldwide to overcome all kinds of hindrances: PTSD (all forms, both domestic and war-related), addictions, negative emotions, etc. Yoga nidra is also being used to increase creativity, emotional resilience and just plain joy.
It is a tool for the enhancement of wellbeing in all its forms.
We practice Yoga Nidra on the last Wednesday of every month.
