Somatic Meditation 

Somatic meditations is an ideal way of enjoying the benefits of meditation without the discomfort or distraction of “just” sitting still – and, unlike yoga nidra, you don’t need to be good at visualisation either.

They are not a new idea. Whirling Dervishes and shamans rituals have been using such practices since ancient times.

Our meditations are of more recent origin. They were inspired by the spiritual teacher,Osho. He created them to help his Western students quieten their minds more easily. We also have our own somatic meditations based on his format.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A SESSION?

Each session is an hour long, broken into different segments. Please arrive on time so that we can demonstrate the stages before we start. So that you can fully benefit from the music, which is designed to enhance your meditation, we suggest that you either wear headphones or connect your device to an external sound system.

 

For most of the meditations you will need:

  • Space to stand and move ( we encourage you to move on the spot)

  • Something to sit on so that it is easy to keep  your  spine upright - either an upright chair (where your legs can comfortably touch the floor) or a meditation  cushion (if you are used to sitting on one)

  • Something to lie on - a yoga mat, blanket or bed

  • Something to cover you should you get cool when we come to stillness.
     

The most important thing is your comfort so bring whatever works for you.  

To begin with, we will be teaching a cycle of 6 meditations, one each week. We have taught them in our workshops for years but teaching them on line is a new venture for us.

1. BODY SENSE MEDITATION
This meditation focuses on our bodies’ sensory experiences. It includes movement, touch and conscious breathing. It is a powerful way to become fully aware of the whole of your being.

2. CHAKRA BREATHING MEDITATION
This meditation focuses on breath and movement. It is a journey through the chakras and includes some visualisation. It is a powerful way to get in touch your place in the universe.

3. KUNDALINI MEDITITION
This meditation focuses on movement and opening ourselves to the sounds of the meditation. It is a beautiful way to relax and become fully present to ourselves.


4. THE QUANTUM LIGHT BREATH
The Quantum Light Breath is a breathing meditation process vocally and energetically guided by Jeru and includes evocative classical music to accelerate personal transformation by releasing withheld feelings and revealing unconscious programs.

5. NADABRAMA MEDITATION
This is a sitting meditation focused on sound (humming) and slow movement. It is less active than most of these meditations but not any the less powerful for this. It generates expansiveness and gratitude.

6. MANDALA MEDITATION
This meditation involves both repetitive and random movements. It is particularly good for letting go of emotional stress and trauma.

7. MEDITATION OF THE FIVE SENSES
Becoming more aware of our senses is a powerful way for us to open ourselves to pleasure, even if we are alone. This is a relaxing, joyful experience. You will need to bring some bite sized pieces of your favourite nibble.

Weekly Biodynamic Breathwork group Zoom event every Wednesday 7.30pm until 9pm

 Breath is a bridge between you and your body”-OSHO

This Breath workshop uses the BioDynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release System®
Many of us in our life have been exposed to traumatic events. While Trauma can be devastating it can be used as a portal and means to personal growth and healing. BBTRS workshops can enable participants to uncover and let go the effects of trauma on their body and life.

There are six components to the BioDynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release System® Breath, Movement, Sound, Touch, Emotions and Meditation

For many, exposure to stress and traumatic experiences has resulted in our breathing becoming shallow and restricted. We release the energetic charge from past trauma and stress by activating the sympathetic Nervous System using a connected breathing technique. Connected breathing allows the very essence of your life force energy to flow through your body in a conscious way, clearing blocks and making space within to experience life. Touch and bodywork supports the opening of tense muscular tissue, as well as to comfort and bring safety during the session.

Once our body is charged with bioenergy, we encourage the physical release in the form of vibration and tremoring which discharges excess energy that has been trapped in our muscles. Emotions and feelings that have been suppressed and unacknowledged begin to rise to the surface following the opening of muscular tensness and an opportunity for deeper connection with our self and supports a life of emotional freedom and mastery.

This is a powerful immersion where you will first experience an active movement meditation to mobilise your body to begin to loosen tensions and stresses. You will then be guided, using connected breathing, to fill your body with oxygen and to fully release any trapped energy, emotions or trauma that is held within your body. Finally you will be supported to be present with yourself to integrate the experience.

As a Bio-Dynamic breath therapist, I will support you and hold space to allow you to fully express and release what has been held frozen in your body, allowing you to be your own healer.

This will be limited to a maximum of six participants and needs to be experienced. Whether you are looking for healing or are just curious about the power of breath-work, for more information or to book a place contact me:


Cost £5.
Your place will only be secured when you have paid for the event.
