Samadhi Guided Meditations

Whether you are getting started in meditation, or you are interested in deepening your meditation practice, this series of 1 hour long guided meditations is designed to cultivate the concentration and equanimity needed to realize Samadhi.

Introduction

A brief overview of the core aspects of meditation, as well as how to optimally engage in this series.

Part 1 – Breath as the Bridge

Detailed guidance from the gross to subtle experience of the breath

Part 2- The Hindrances

Working consciously with hindrances such as pain, sleepiness and busy mind transforms them from being problems to opportunities.

Part 3 – Prana

Penetrating into the breath more deeply, the observer begins to merge with the spiral of life itself.

Part 4 – Know Yourself

Strip away all that’s changing; the relative, and realize your true nature; the Absolute.

Zoom Meditations

A selection from our weekly Zoom meditations. These guided meditations generally combine both self inquiry (short path) approaches as well as insight meditation ( long path) approaches.

Pain as Purifier

All experience – even that of physical pain/discomfort – can be used to purify our consciousness. Tanya Mahar guides us through a vipassana practice that can help reduce suffering/resistance around challenging physical sensations, then touches down in the Emptiness or Open Knowing within which/as which all sensations arise and pass. (30 Minutes)

Nurture Loving-Kindness – for Yourself

We practice unconditional compassion and loving-kindness (Metta) for ourselves in this meditation with Tanya Mahar. (30 Minutes)

Cultivating Tranquility via Ratio Breathing and Restful Physical Sensations

In this meditation, Tanya Mahar shares a breathing technique which can stimulate the parasympathetic system (relax, rest and digest functions), then leads a practice to further cultivate a relaxed state of mind/body through contacting restful or neutral physical sensations. (30 Minutes)

Mental Talk as Gateway to Disidentify with Thoughts/Self

In this meditation, Tanya Mahar guides us to explore the auditory aspect of thoughts in a way that can help us disidentify with them, and perhaps contact what lies beyond them. (30 Minutes)
