Experience for yourself the happiness and inner peace that comes through the practice of meditation. Our beginning meditation classes will teach you simple, enjoyable, and effective practices of meditation to add to your daily life.
At Lotus Garden, we teach an authentic, time-tested method of meditation called Mantra Meditation. "Man" means mind, "tra" means to lift away or deliver from; the sacred mantras you will learn have the ability to lift the mind away from the stress and troubles of life and bring the Soul to a place of true peace and lasting happiness.
Meditation has been practiced and passed down since ancient times because of it's profound benefits, which remain relevant and valuable to us today. Initially, meditation improves the health of the physical body as well as the quality of our mental state. It can improve focus, provide relief from stress and anxiety, and help us become more aware and mindful in our daily activities. It develops qualities such as patience, forgiveness, compassion, and selflessness. Deeper yet, through meditation you can actually become free from anxiety and feelings of inner emptiness. You can achieve self-realization, coming to know who you are, what real peace is, and how to transcend the problems of this world.
In this live-streamed virtual class, you will learn 3 techniques of Mantra meditation that are simple to use and easy to incorporate into your daily life right away.
These classes are designed for beginners, but those with meditation experience will also benefit and learn something new.
Pre-registration is required. Online registration closes half an hour before the start of class (if you miss that window, give us a call and we will get your registered). 30min before class begins you will receive an email with the link to join.
Before joining the class, find a quiet place where you can sit comfortably and are able to see and hear the Lotus Garden teacher from your computer, tablet or mobile device. Please have your video displayed and your microphone enabled so that we can see you and interact throughout class. The class will be a combination of instruction and practice with the opportunity to ask questions.
If you'd like to continue your study and deepen your understanding after your intro class, we offer parts 2-4 as follow up classes.
Special Note: These classes were previously held in-person at the Meditation Center, and as part of the class we would normally provide you with Meditation beads (also known as Japa or Mala beads). Due to current circumstances these classes are virtual and therefore we need to get creative about providing beads.
Here are a couple options:
-Substitute with something you already have (such as a beaded necklace).
- Make your own by using a piece of ribbon, shoelace or cord and tie knots in it to act as beads.
If you are not able to get any beads for the class, don’t worry, your instructor will demonstrate an alternative using only your hands :-)
Additionally, if you have registered at least 3 days in advance, you can call us to arrange a time to come by our yoga studio and pick up a set of beads for $5.
Please contact us if you would like to arrange to pick up beads or have any questions: 916-944-8505
