The Power of Awareness - Weekend Meditation with Swami Anandakumar Saraswati


Date: 27 & 28 February 2016 (Saturday & Sunday)


The most often asked question in meditation is what to do with the mind particularly when it won’t do what you want it to. Any practice you do, at some time you will be faced with an overactive and wilful mind. And the question comes then, what to do? This week-end will look at ways to answer that question and deal with the mind so that there is continuous satisfaction in meditation. This will not eliminate the mind, but it will look into ways of developing a friendly relationship so that there need never be the feeling that you are fighting with yourself.

The focus will be on Awareness. What it is; how to practise it properly; how to maintain it; what it can do for you; and the benefits that can accrue in daily life. Awareness is the constant in meditation. Any technique, you are either present or you are wandering you don’t know where. Awareness is being present, in this moment, and there are delightful ways to be present. Awareness is seeing things equally undivided by opinion and self-appraisal. Awareness is becoming free from the demands of the mind.

Learn to let the mind rest and enjoy a different, deeper kind of relaxation, that will leave you wiser, and more ready for the demands of life.
