Original Love: Samadhi and Flow States, 6-week Series
Zone 3: Samadhi and Flow States
- 6 week course: Sundays July 31 – September 4, 2022, 10am – 12pm MT
- Weekend retreat: Saturday & Sunday, September 10-11, 2022
In this zone we learn methods for deepening meditation experience, and coming to enjoy sitting, in remarkably fulfilling ways. The gold-standard in most meditation traditions is “samadhi” – meaning, various kinds of absorption or “flow states” that we can learn to enter more commonly. There’s a fine line between being too goal-oriented in practice, and getting caught in seeking out certain kinds of experience – versus, on the other hand, letting things be as they are, and maybe allowing things to stagnate or become dull. We learn to navigate that line, and start to taste the deep fulfillment that meditation can open up, as we learn to do less and less, and allow the sitting itself to do all the work for us, leading us down a path of growth and discovery.
We explore various techniques for cultivating samadhi, including:
- calming breathwork
- deepening breath awareness
- effortless sitting
- open spaciousness
Registration opens this summer.
