Meditation Teacher Training in Snowdonia, Nov 2020
What is Dru Meditation?
Dru Meditation is about developing techniques and practices that will help you to remain calm and focused whilst navigating the challenges of life. It will help you discover a mindful awareness, or a still point within, by exploring the science of meditation. This is done uniquely in Dru Meditation, by focusing on the different levels, or koshas, through which we experience the world, taking the awareness from the physical through to the deepest layer of our being.
‘Dru Meditation enables you to bring your practice to the next level, leaves you feeling light and gives you a way forward.’
Karan, Dru Yoga teacher, Cheltenham
The Dru Meditation course
On the Dru Meditation course you will learn a holistic process of meditation, from its most physical techniques to the most subtle awareness of your own energy. You will explore different styles of meditation through your own practice will find real inner peace. You’ll explore movement to prepare for meditation as well as the breathing and relaxation techniques that are an important preparation for sitting. You will also learn the art of teaching meditation to others, and guiding them through that same process. This is more than just a course – it is also a powerful transformational journey. It provides you with the tools to examine and transform ways of being that you find unhelpful so that you can transform them and engage with your life in a positive and successful way.
Amongst other things, you will learn:
- Meditations for awakening each kosha
- A deeper understanding of subtle energy
- Dru prana kriyas
- Pranayama to enhance meditation practice
- Mudras for meditation, health and emotional wellbeing
- Structuring and planning meditation classes
- Meditative prayer and contemplation techniques
- Chanting/singing and mantra meditation
- Meditation for healing the body and the earth
- Meditation in the workplace
- Concentration techniques to develop your focus for successful meditation
‘Dru Meditation helps me calm my thoughts and navigate my life.’ Raj, yoga teacher
'I find Dru meditation really helps to bring balance in myself in this hurly burly world. It is a wonderful tool to take out and share with others.’ Judith, remedial therapist, Abergavenny
How do I prepare to come?
We encourage you to have attended two Dru Meditation retreats before the teacher training course. It helps if you are familiar with some of the basic Dru Yoga and Meditation techniques taught on those retreats, and helps us move the whole group ahead at the same pace. These include:
- Working knowledge of Energy Block Release 1, 2 & 3 and other Dru Yoga sequences
- Experience of the Prana Kriya techniques
- Good knowledge of the Vertical Alignment, Blue Mist and other Dru techniques
- An established meditation practice
- Knowledge of the chakras and subtle energy systems
Our next preparatory meditation retreat
More details can be found on our website www.druyoga.com. Alternatively, we encourage you to attend at least a term of Dru meditation classes with a qualified Dru meditation teacher, in place of one of the retreats. If it’s not possible to achieve these preparations, you can catch up with a mentoring session from one of the tutors.
