When you hear the word meditation what concepts jump to mind? Transcendental, relaxation, yoga, Qi Gong? Hours spent in strange positions, chanting? Mindfulness? Not just through Unity but there has been extensive research on meditation practices that has revealed that regular meditation has many mental and physical benefits and that there are many effective ways to meditate.
This course explores the practice and the experience of various forms of meditation. The benefits of the various forms of meditation will also be explored as well as methods to deal with resistance to it. There will also be helpful tips for developing a regular meditation practice. Unity’s meditation practice known as Practicing the Silence, is fundamental and foundational to Unity teachings. Therefore, it will be the primary meditation practice for the duration of the course.
The books for this course are:
- Heart-Centered Metaphysics, Unity House, 2010 by Paul Hasselbeck
- Meditation for Dummies, 2nd Edition or 3rd Edition by Stephan Bodian
- This is a good overview for someone new to meditation
