BE HERE NOW - EMBODIED and PRESENT AWARENESS MEDITATION
In this 8 week series, Michael Lee, the Founder of Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy will guide you in easy to follow body and breath meditation practices that will bring you home to now. You will engage both body and breath as anchors to support a shift in your "lens of self-reference". From a place of greater equanimity, stress, anxiety, fear and tension can be transformed. As the series progresses you will become more empowered to lean into life with greater ease and ride the bumps on the road of life without falling off the bicycle. Themes like Awareness, Acceptance, Choice, and Discernment will be focused in the meditation and in a short life integration that follows the practice.
Each week will of the program will focus on a different stage, including:
Week 1: Befriending Your Body
Week 2: Awareness
Week 3: Acceptance
Week 4: Choice
Week 5: Discernment
Week 6: Truth
Week 7: Truth in Action
Week 8: Flow
