Each month TanyaMarck & Nick will create a custom practice for the group. The themes may follow the seasons of the year, the phases of the moon and stars, or a particular spiritual practice or chant. Below is more information about some of the practices you may experience.
Mindfulness & guided meditation:
Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.
Breathwork is the mindful connection to your body + systems along with your inhale and exhale, a concept descended from the ancient practice Pranyayama, a Sanskrit word which has been translated as ‘extension of the life force’ or ‘breath control.’ Breathwork is the exploration of inhaling and exhaling techniques. Breathwork is a tool for regulating, releasing, receiving, resetting, and grounding your energy in your body + systems.
Chanting has the potential to bring you to deep attention and a feeling of connection to the divine. Chants may be in a variety of languages and may stem from different spiritual traditions or mantras. Or they may simply be positive affirmations and words of compassion to cultivate a sense of peace and well-being. In these practices we honor and respect all spiritual and religious lineages.
