If you’ve been looking for yoga classes or a form of meditation or mindfulness, you’ve almost certainly come across a multitude of different practices. At The Garden, in Frankston, the Present Mindfulness Academy runs term-length mindfulness programs. If you’re looking for a dedicated space for Women’s Meditation and Healing in Frankston, you will find exactly that with Jodie Maree, who is a local spiritual healer and meditation facilitator. Or you may have seen the website for Transcendental Meditation in Mornington.
Meditation also forms part of the Kundalini Yoga practice. The distinction with this form of yoga is that most of the meditations at the end of the class are for specific purposes. As with the kriyas, there are thousands of different meditations to choose from. There are meditations for healing, for prosperity, for releasing anger, for the liver, and for each of the chakras, to name just a few. If you find a kriya or meditation that strongly resonates with you, we encourage you to practise it for 40 or 90 days in row to enhance the experience. Some people continue for 1000 days.
At first glance, the array of meditation options can seem daunting. As part of your research, you might have noticed that, regardless of the tradition, most forms of meditation originate from the same sources of sacred texts. Perhaps you have seen references to the Bhagavad Gita or Vedic scripture. Over the years, the interpretations of these ancient works have led to the evolution of the different styles of yoga and meditation we see today.
With so many techniques to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to begin. However, once you find a style that suits you and meets your needs, you’re sure to feel the benefits quickly.
