I have been wanting to attend a meditation class for months now just so to sit down and have a quiet time for myself. From all the stress and pressure every day living gives us, our mind and body bear a lot of weight and we need to be relieved of all that.
Finally I was to join a meditation class this Saturday at White Space,Katipunan courtesy of Jen Horn/ Muni Ph. I ditched everything just to commit to attending this class; not even the ridiculous traffic in Katipunan stopped me from attending. As it turns out, it was all worth it.
To start things off, our teacher, Sarah, asked us to introduce our self and say what meditation is for us. For me it was all about focusing my energy and relaxing the whole me. According to Sarah, meditation is not a way to quiet our mind and stop our thoughts, it’s more of finding a way to go through all the thoughts or noises that we have may it be about our work, relationships or whatever else. That was life-changing to know.
I tried my best not to be conscious with what I was doing. It’s very natural in me to worry whether I’m doing this and that the right way or if I look silly. Although we had our eyes closed the entire session, I still felt a bit conscious, but with the guidance of our teacher, I think I was able to pull it off properly.
I meditated and focused on my breathing. Sarah said to just acknowledge the distraction when we lose our focus and slowly get back to focusing on our breathing. With eyes closed, palms facing up, I meditated ;] She really guided us well, helped us focus and I learned to course all the thoughts in my head. Sure there were times when I drifted but Sarah pulled me back. I knew I was back on track when I started seeing blobs of glowing thick lights, moving and curling like waves. It was unreal.
White Space is a very beautiful place to have a class in. I’ve been there before for my first and only yoga class and I really find the place charming and relaxing. Their teachers are such calm beings, you wouldn’t dare bring negative vibes in their space.
Right now I am seriously considering signing up to more classes in White Space. Aside from yoga and meditation, they also have Reiki, T’ai Chi , Pilates and some more mind and body fitness classes. I suggest you check-out their page and try a class with them.
I am so happy I attended this class. Thanks to Jen for inviting me and listening to my stories and hang-ups.
Til the next wellness adventure!
