HOW TO MEDITATE
This Summer and next Autumn 2018, Laurent is offering a modern, non-dogmatic and unique meditation course. A great opportunity to experience a broad range of techniques which are derived from the universal teachings of Mindfulness, Spanda, Advaita, Vedic and Eastern/Western spiritual philosophies. Plus, from Laurent’s own studies, practice and inner work methods coming from his teachers and people who have inspired him.
The goal of the course is to experience, explore and understand the deeper meaning of those meditative techniques and to develop an enriching and supportive meditation practice.
During the weekly session, Laurent will create and hold a safe space with guided meditations, experiments and discussions on the work. Each student will be supported and guided on their own personal journey. The course has a very down to earth and practical approach, to inspire and facilitate all levels of meditators, whether that is beginner, a yoga teacher or an advanced practitioner.
