Let’s deep dive into our emotions while staying safely grounded with this Sacred Selves Meditation. As we move toward the Autumn season, this meditation invites inward into a reflection on the lessons learned from our Summer adventures.
The Sacred Selves meditation builds off of the 5-Koshas meditation from Vedic philosophy. We focus specifically on the Manomayakosha মনোময (Mind / Emotional Body). If you have attended the 5-Koshas practice in the past, this will be a wonderful way to build on what you have learned. This series is also designed for anyone to jump right in, as we explore the different parts of our Emotional Selves…which are sometimes called the “4 Sacred Selves.”
We will start with an overview of the Mind/Emotional Self, and then take a look at what psychologists today call the “Wounded Self”, the “Shadow Self”, the “Healing Self” and the “Vibrant Self”. These selves are all a part of us. Can we gaze with love and curiosity at what is there, and hold it in the light? This is the practice.
The meditation is designed to be a reflective meditation with prompts to observe and examine all of these sacred parts of ourselves. We consciously dial up the calm, curious and lighter, less serious parts, inviting in self-compassion and a more balanced state for our Mind/Emotional Body.
Enjoying a deeply nourishing and supportive practice throughout this 5 week series, participants will walk away with new tools for practicing observation and discernment of the Mind/Emotions Body.
