What to expect during our Ottawa Individual Meditation Sessions
Our Ottawa individual meditation sessions begin with a discussion about why you wish to meditate and what you hope to gain from a regular meditation practice. Then Abrah will guide you through a meditation practice that reflects both your wishes and needs.
After meditating together, there will be time to ask questions and clarify the instructions. Following the session, Abrah will send you written instructions on the meditation offered.
It is recommended that you come for at least three sessions to deepen your experience while creating a regular meditation practice.
Your teacher, Abrah
Abrah has been meditating for approximately 30 years. She has experience with many different systems of meditation, has done lengthy personal retreats and taught many people.
Through her experience, she has learned that a regular meditation practice helps one remain present with an open heart to all of life, both the good and the bad.
Meditation as Medicine
Ancient meditation masters use the same word to describe the human heart and mind. They experienced the emotions of the heart and the thoughts of the mind as entwined like two dancers.
Meditation was practised to bring the two into a harmonious dance.
These ancient masters knew that one way to heal a mind that is confused, anxious, or depressed is to practice meditation that opens the heart to the present moment.
When the heart is open the mind is calm. In this way, meditation was offered as medicine for both the mind and the heart.
