Advanced meditation

Cutting through appearances

Sunday 25 March
11 am–12.30 pm
Tara Hills Retreat Centre

This is a meditation on the infinite dance of formations – cultivating the ability to move through the world of formations without clinging. Developing the ability to cut through all appearances so as to act immediately and directly, responding to what is actually happening.
 
The visualisation depicts a fiery female energy, cutting with crystal clarity through all confusion and uncertainty like a diamond cutter.
Members Classes Tantra meditation

At our advanced meditation sessions we offer an experience that engages all of your senses – sight, touch, sound, smell and taste – it gives a far more powerful experience than what we can offer in the Lifeflow Studio in the city. The visualisation will be accompanied with a mantra (a series of words that are repeated, bringing an aural component to the meditation) which, once learnt, can be used to easily bring back the feeling of the meditation.

A shared meal follows the visualisation.

Back to the Future

Presenter: Nicole Powell

Sunday 2 June
11 am–12.30 pm
Tara Hills Retreat Centre

To understand the identity we must look backwards before we can move forwards. What’s really driving us, where did it come from and where is it all going … and perhaps most importantly, how can we learn to work with it in everyday life? Join Lifeflow teacher Nicole Powell as she presents this fun and entertaining seminar at Tara Hills.

Everyone is welcome to stay for a shared lunch following the session. Please bring a plate of food to share.

Advanced meditation

Sunday 8 September
11 am–12.30 pm
Tara Hills Retreat Centre

Highest Ecstasy – advanced meditation

This is a meditation on the highest state of ecstasy – brought about through uniting space and form, through the union of the male and female energies of the body.

At our advanced meditation sessions we offer an experience that engages all of your senses – sight, touch, sound, smell and taste – it gives a far more powerful experience than what we can offer in the Lifeflow Studio in the city. The visualisation will be accompanied with a mantra (a series of words that are repeated, bringing an aural component to the meditation) which, once learnt, can be used to easily bring back the feeling of the meditation.

A shared meal follows the visualisation.

General information

These seminars, forums and Advanced visualisations provide a great opportunity to meet other Lifeflow members. Most are free, and open to all members – the only exceptions being the Advanced meditation sessions – see details below.

Each session includes a guided meditation. After each session there will be:

  • a share lunch in our beautiful Dining Hall – please bring a plate to share;
  • time to soak up the ambience of Tara Hills and the surrounding countryside;
  • and time to meet with other members of the Centre.

Bring a hat and walking shoes too if you’d like to take advantage of the walks in and around Tara Hills.

About members' seminars

These seminars have been set up to provide an opportunity for members to share their experiences of meditation and its integration into everyday life. All members are encouraged to attend, to ask questions and gain some insights from fellow meditators’ experiences. Each seminar is presented by a member of the Centre, who may or may not be a teacher – so it’s a great way to hear about meditation from a variety of perspectives.

Each seminar is free for all Lifeflow members.

About Advanced meditation sessions

Each half-year, one of a series of 12 advanced meditations are held at Tara Hills. These meditations, with their mantras, can help you to become more familiar with different kinds of healthy emotional states. Through practice you can develop these states, and learn to access them at will.

Payment for this session:
Members by donation

These sessions also provide a great opportunity to connect with a broader community of meditators.
