Falmouth, Cornwall 8 Week Meditation Course. May/June 2018

Thursday, May 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - Thursday, June 21, 2018 @ 7:30 pm

Learn how to observe the natural breath in order to experience inner peace and to change negative thought patterns.

The purpose of technique, referred to by Patanjali as Prana Samyama, is to bring balance and harmony to the mind. In the long term it has the power to transform negative mind patterns leading to profound peace and happiness. Meditation on the natural breath is central to Yoga and Buddhist systems, as well as to contemporary mindfulness models.
The course offers the opportunity to learn and practice the technique in a focused and sustained way over 8 weeks with the support of an experienced and certified Traditional Yoga teacher to guide you through the progressive stages and answer any questions that may arise. It is taught in the tradition of Patanjali, through a series of guided meditations by Dr. Kumar, maintaining a direct link to the original instructions and scriptures in which they have been preserved for centuries.
Suitable for anyone over the age of 15 who wishes to learn a truly transformative meditation technique.
“Dr. Kumar’s meditation method almost instantly transformed my meditation practice. Vanessa is a truly inspiring teacher, able to guide you through the various stages. Highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to experience this life-enhancing practice.“ – Alice Day
I have been meditating for some years, but it’s been invaluable to hear Vanessa explain the profound thinking behind this particular technique and guide us gently through each step. Sharing the experience with a class really takes it to a different level. I have found the course both deeply relaxing and enriching – and we’re only half way through it!” – Katie Stephens
Course led by Steve Braund   
Steve Braund is based in Cornwall and has been practising meditation and yoga with Dr. Kumar for eight years, having meditated in Eastern traditions throughout most of his adult life. Steve says that the benefits of practising this meditation cannot be understated. ‘It enables you to realise that source of inner illumination and deep peace that can help us to be less dependent upon the ever changing and impermanent things we seek happiness through in the external world.’ Outside of meditation Steve is an illustrator and educator by profession, running a Master’s course in Authorial Illustration at Falmouth University and is managing director of the independent publishing company Atlantic Press.
