Neeloy Sanyal: Structured Meditation Intensive Course, Starts - 1st August
Meet Your Teacher:
In 2017, Neeloy took off on a week-long solo trip, only to return seventeen months later. During this time, he not only traversed the entire country, but also parts of his own mind.
He first spent months checking off his bucket list, and when that wasn't good enough, he spent months seeking out authentic classical Indian wisdom.
Neeloy now teaches meditation in a manner that speaks to the modern mind- millennial and baby-boomers alike! His approach is humorous and pragmatic.
He is an established RYT 200 teacher with a firm base in mindful Iyengar principles. He has over 1500+ hours of solid experience teaching large groups and has led and facilitated meditation retreats in the Himalayas.
About The Course:
STRUCTURED MEDITATION INTENSIVE COURSE
Dates: 1st August to 9th August
The only course of its kind. LIVE on Instagram (not recorded)
This is the new updated version 2.0! A course that keeps evolving to keep with the current times - staying relevant
In the beginning of the lockdown we heard; "If we can't go outside, go within". But if you've never learnt how to go within, where do you even start?
This course is for anyone who is genuinely interested in practice of meditation, yet hasn't come across a structure or method that teaches it effectively.
If you’ve dabbled with some apps or audios and yet find it overwhelming to sit on a cushion, it’s not your fault. It's because they are all unstructured. And as humans we find it challenging to form habits around arbitrary information.
If meditation apps and videos are not teaching you how to meditate, it’s because they barely skim the surface. Their intentions are well placed but the methods, ineffective.
This course is designed to take you through a step by step process helping you form a worldview that makes meditation joyful and wholesome!
We go in-depth into techniques and philosophy that allow us to create a sustainable practice.
During these 10 sessions, there are opportunities to discover eye-opening knowledge about ourselves and become the masters of our own mind.
I will bring meditation philosophy that is very in-depth and will lead us to go through a series of stabilizing and analytical meditations that follow a certain scientific pathway. This will help us appreciate our daily lives and how we associate with people and things around us in a much more intelligent manner.
This could be best described as the way of the Buddha.
As a bonus, the entire course will be led LIVE on an Instagram members-only private account. The beauty of being on Instagram LIVE is much different than doing on Zoom, as there is a sense of community and all content is saved in one place for you to go back at any point. And in case you can’t attend some sessions LIVE, you have the option to watch the recorded videos at a time that suits you. This helps us stay up to date with schedules, reading material and stay
motivated as we practice together in a group as much as possible.
You will be constantly reminded to stay abreast with the pace and will have direct communication with the facilitator. A possibility that is rarely found in the modern day recorded courses trend online.
Remember- systems work, people fail. That’s why forming a habit around meditation needs structure and guidance.
What we'll cover:
- Meditation Technique
- Meditation Philosophy (How exactly do we deal with our mind)
- Dealing with common roadblocks in meditation and applying antidotes
- Learning Stabilizing and Analytical meditation (Shamatha-Vipassana)
