MEDITATION WITH KIRSTI MATTHEWS
This Thursday we will start with Kapalbhati. Kapalbhati translates as skull shining or skull polishing. This pranayama naturally expands what is known as your chidakasha and will lead naturally into a Nada Meditation. Nada Meditations are all about the inner landscape and we will be doing a very proactive meditation to assist us in this exploration.
Neither the breathing exercise nor the meditation are recommended if you have any health issues such as hypertension, high blood pressure, heart issues, pregnancy, etc. So unfortunately these may not be for you, but please do join us another time.
In 2018 Kirsti spent a month in an amazing Meditation school in Rishikesh – the Spiritual home of meditation and yoga in India where she learnt over 20 different types of meditation.
Her biggest lesson was there is no one-way to meditate that will suit everyone.
Just like getting fit there are all sort of ways but not everyone likes the same team sports, aerobics or swimming. The same with meditation – find your object or preferably a couple and take it from there.
As well as different meditation techniques, Kirsti also uses a variety of breathing practices, mudras and bandhas to introduce subtle, enjoyable and interesting ways to explore your inner landscape.
Kirsti’s role as a meditation teacher is to facilitate this search and journey beyond.
