Our perception of the world has much to do with our internal attitude. The process of transforming the inner self begins with the practice of meditation. By learning to stay present and open the mind of our heart – step by step – we can be free from illusions, expectations, ignorance, hope, and fear. Quite, sitting meditation, is the first step, to calm the mind, so we can change afflictive states of being and thought patterns. Using the one-pointed consciousness of Shinay meditation, we will train our awareness, to see things as they actually are.
Teacher: Eliza Bishop
Eliza Bishop is an internationally certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor and Meditation Practitioner. She began her practice of healing and alignment with yoga 14 years ago and through the science of Iyengar Yoga she has been exploring the interconnectivity of all facets of being. The precision and alignment of Iyengar Yoga builds a solid foundation for experiencing the cosmic core of being, with softness, compassion, and intuition, whilst the subtle journey of Pranayama allows her to explore the vast realms of inner space. She has studied with the Iyengar family in Pune, India, and regularly makes retreats with Swati and Rajiv Chanchani of Yog-ganga in Old Rajpur, India. For Eliza, the art of teaching means bringing human beings into an asana with complete involvement of body, mind, and breath, creating awareness that allows one, eventually, to study the mind. In her Mindfulness and Meditation Classes Eliza presents a basic understanding of how to have clear vision, so that students can connect their understanding of the way things are, and not the way they seem. With this union, students are freer to respond to life and experiences fully, with no resistance at all, and with no resentment what so ever. For Eliza the yogic and Buddhist paths merge into one and have solidified a life long practice of evolving towards equilibrium in every moment of mindfulness.
