Prerequisite: The Mind Oasis Meditation Immersion or a similar training from Three Jewels, Vessel Academy, or the like.
The Mind Oasis Method for developing a meditation practice you look forward to each day is both unique and effective. Throughout the basic immersion, we offer instruction and guidance based on an ancient form of meditation called shamatha (calm-abiding), with complementary methods that have been updated for modern times based on neuroscience and the experience of having guided thousands of meditators on Community Meditation™.
In the Intermediate Immersion, we will briefly revisit the basics and then will deep dive into Stage Four, Five, and Six. At the end of Stage Six, all subtle and gross distractions have ceased, as has mind wandering!
This is a prerequisite for the newly developed Advanced Meditation Immersion that takes practitioners through Stages Seven, Eight, Nine, and Ten (samadhi) and will be offered in the fall of 2023.
This Immersion is for you, if:
Starts January 29th - 9am CT
Ends April 16th
Our expectation for the three months:
You will show up for the weekly classes (you’re only allowed to miss two).
You will practice for a minimum of 24 minutes each day.
You will show up for a minimum of one Community Meditation session each week.
You will engage a 5-7 day meditation retreat before the end of summer.
At the end of the three months, if you engage in the Immersion as outlined above, you will have a meditation practice that is void of mind wandering and filled with bliss. You will have a practice that is applicable for parenting, partnering, working, and life-ing! You will have a strong intermediate base on which to grow your meditation and mindfulness practice over the years to come.
