Meditation 4 Life  – Online

5 week Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga Course
with Matt Padwick
Saturdays 10am – 11am From 17th October to 14th November
(Late viewing available in case you miss a session)

Meditation can be the greatest gift we give ourselves in this life – when we know how…

Suitable for anyone who has already been introduced to Kum Nye with Matt, meditation 4 life will give us a felt sense of what meditation really is, and cultivate the stability and confidence we need to live well. And don’t worry if you miss a session! All sessions will be recorded and available for catch up at your convenience.

Meditation 4 Life is a five week online course that includes;

  • One sixty-minute ‘live’ online session each week
  • Links to the recordings for late-viewing/reviewing
  • Advice for personal practice between the live sessions
  • Personal check-in [optional – via email and/or small-group meetings]

“As each week goes by I realise how wonderful and beneficial Kum Nye is for me and within my life. My mind is calm and peaceful. I feel very content. Socially, my interactions are calmer and I am ‘watching’ the drama! The biggest thing I’ve noticed is …. my golf has improved dramatically!!” Frances, June 2020

Set up
Do your best to be in a room [or dedicated space] where you will not be interrupted. Many of the exercises are chair-based, so an upright chair (preferably without arms) is good. To relax fully we need to be comfortable so only sit on meditation cushion if it is easy for you.  Set up your seat in a way that you can see the computer/tablet screen.  For the standing exercises you need enough space to move your arms out to the sides and above your head (and see the screen!).
Yoga mats are not necessary. Wear clothing that allows free movement. Best is not to wear shoes, barefoot is ideal, but soft slippers or thick socks are cosy!
