5Senses Meditation is awareness of the 5Senses as a gateway to inner peace and harmony. Cultivating awareness through the 5 Senses is the key to overcoming suffering and recognizing this natural wisdom: both our own and others. But how to stay in touch with this moment, especially when your mind keeps running away from you like it so often does?
The meditation courses provide a platform for you to observe how the 5 senses actually control oneself, so you have the chance to step back and reflect on how you choose your next moments of Now would Be. Through using mindful exercises which are especially designed to bring your awareness to these habits which one is cultured. The exercises are designed to enable participants to incorporate them into your daily lives, so each person can experience a fuller and more present life.
You are then provided the opportunity to learn how to change and refine this. As you start to understand how the 5Senses control your daily existence, you can then be freed from becoming entangled in thoughts of your past, and you are freed from worrying about the future. In the here and now, everything just is…and there is great peace in that.
If 5Senses meditation and mindfulness is a new idea to you, then it might seem a little daunting to try and keep your attention fixed in the present moment. The exercises are simple to follow for mixed abilities and no experience is necessary. The gateway is open, and it is up to you if you wish to step inside and explore.
Please note there is minimal physical exercise.
A handout is provided.
