There are many things in life that are beyond our control. However, it is possible to take responsibility for our own states of mind – and to change them for the better.
Meditation is a means of doing this, of transforming the mind.
Meditation has the perfect balance between alertness and relaxation. It doesn’t matter if you practise in a chair or sitting cross legged on the floor, it’s all about quietening the mind and stilling the body.
Dru Meditation is about finding a still inner point from which you can look at the world in a different way and discover a fresh, new perspective on your life. You will learn to access a deep inner peace, no matter what challenges you may be facing in life. You will discover powerful breathing techniques (pranayama), clearing techniques (kriyas) and concentration techniques.
A Dru Meditation class begins with an Activation to warm the body and raise energy levels then focuses on the hallmark of DRU, an EBR (Energy Block Release); sequences specifically designed to release stuck energy at all levels of our being and to directly influence the subtle energy channels. Once the body is activated and energy is flowing, total Relaxation is attainable. Only then can we truly discover the still-point within and begin to sit comfortably in Meditation.
Dru takes you deeply into the science of Meditation, showing how to bring your awareness from the physical body, through to the deepest layers of your being. Dru uniquely makes a focus of the five koshas, which are the different levels through which we experience the world.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. – Buddha
“Meditation is meeting eternity in the present moment. It is resolving every problem as it comes. It is resolving every tension as it creeps in. It is facing the challenges of life in a non-fearful way.” ~ Vimala Thaka
“We found that the health and wellbeing profile of people who had meditated for at least two years was significantly higher in the majority of health and wellbeing categories when compared to the Australian population.” - Dr Ramesh Manocha, Sydney Medical School
“even short amounts of practice,” like 30 minutes of meditation per day, “can induce measurable changes in the brain” that can be tracked on a brain scanner. - World-renowned neuroscientist Richie Davidson at the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
