What should I wear? Wear whatever helps you feel at ease, I’d recommend something flexible and comfortable. And you can leave your shoes on or off, up to you!
What should I bring? Everything you need will be provided, if you want to bring a personal journal to write insights, a cushion or pillow that is up to you.
The meditation instruction may direct standing, sitting, or laying down posture. The meditation posture is to allow for alert relaxation without falling asleep, cushions, blankets, pillows, and yoga mats provided. While it is common to feel some discomfort during sitting meditations, caring for yourself is welcomed. Variations, moving around and changing positions are encouraged in order to get the most from the practice!
