Online Meditation Course
Antar Mouna : Inner Silence
This 5 week course is a progressive exploration of the meditation practice Antar Mouna (literally Inner Silence).
The focus of Antar Mouna is the mind itself. In the early stages we concentrate on sense experiences, the sense of touch and hearing in particular, but gradually we begin to pay more attention to the activity of the mind.
In some ways Antar Mouna is the original mindfulness practice.
Antar Mouna is an important technique in meditation because it creates an environment in which the mind gradually settles and quietens. It is useful as a ‘tool for living’ because it helps us to better understand the workings of our own mind, our habits of thought, our moods etc.
The better we understand ourselves the more we can be at peace with ourselves.
The sessions include posture work, breathing and relaxation but the focus is meditation.
