Meditation is one of the many tools used to go inwards and still the mind, it’s one of the oldest techniques known to man and has been used and developed in many ways. There are walking meditations, where one becomes aware of every step, breathing meditations, using breathing techniques to still the mind, and even washing the dishes meditation, where one learns to observe the breath and thoughts while doing the dishes or any other activity throughout the day. Meditation allows one to reach a point of stillness in the mind, and in this stillness the body can finally reach a point of pure relaxation and serenity from the ongoing mind-chatter.
In this class Sahar will be guiding you through a meditation journey of exploring the body through asanas and breathing exercises, and later moving through drum meditation, where one can explore the depth of their inner worlds, and journey inwards.
Drumming meditation has been used for centuries to guide us into the inner spiritual realms, into the deep layers or the mind and the soul. Everything is made up of vibration and frequencies, so everything is made up of audible or inaudible sounds. Drumming connects us straight to the heart; it is our first drum beat as we come into existence into the world, swimming in our mother’s wombs. The pulsations of the heart are connected with the drum as it brings us this security of being in the womb, and this is why researchers believe that we can easily access this state of mind by using drumming techniques that can slow down and stabilize not only our heart beat but also our mind-frequencies.
