Meditators will be guided through a soothing and awareness-driven body scan (also known as Yoga Nidra) with the intention of connecting to all aspects of their bodies; harmonizing mind, body, and soul. Participants will be guided to use breath, visualization, and focus techniques to encourage relaxation and increased awareness of the present moment. Meditators will then be given the opportunity to visualize a serene, safe space within their minds; allowing for the possibility to connect with different emotions, thoughts, or sensations that may emerge through this process.
This event is open to all types of meditators whether you are more experienced or have never meditated before. This space will be completely confidential, with honour and respect for all participants.
Please note that mediation can bring up powerful physical and mental experiences that may not always be pleasant, in the case that the experience becomes overwhelming participants are free to leave the space no questions asked. There is also space to share moments of your experience with the group or guide once the meditation has been completed.
