Most are new to meditation and we anticipate there may be a handful of questions during the program. Yogi Cali has offered to spend about 5 minutes after the live sessions to answer any questions you may have.
The recorded live sessions will be available to view within 24 hours. You will notice the Tile for the session will change from "LIve Class" to "Recorded Live Class is Available."
Anywhere that is a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Indoors or outdoors. Outdoors could provide a different sensation with the environmental effects for a calmer and peaceful feeling. It is ideal to silence the phone and computer so you won’t be interrupted.
Meditation consistency builds healthy habits by practicing the same time(s) to be a part of your daily routine; preferably twice each day, once in the morning and in the evening on an empty stomach. Allow yourself to experience different techniques so you can learn new ways and anchors to benefit your practice.
There’s no right or wrong way. There is awareness and non-awareness. Many times we might run on a default mode of thinking that also affect our choices and behavior. The moment you realize you're lost in thought, that's awareness! The more you meditate, the more you will improve your focus and self-awareness.
It’s a misconception that meditation is all about silence and stillness. Each time you practice you may notice that it is a different experience than the previous time you meditated. Continue to be observant of your own thoughts and feelings to expand your awareness without judging or labeling them as good or bad.
It will be helpful to select a meditation anchor to stabilize and steady your mind. It is natural for the mind to wander away from the anchor. When you notice this, gently guide your attention back into the body to re-relax and reconnect with the anchor. Every time you do this, you are developing the "muscle" of mindfulness and in time, the mind will naturally settle and quiet.
You can explore different postures by sitting on a chair or sitting cross-legged. You can also use a pillow or blanket as a cushion when sitting. If needed, you can lie down. What matters is you respect your body in any position where you can be most comfortable and alert.
The meditation site and its videos will be available through June 2021.
