Authentic Meditation

The Process

Why a Meditation Workshop?

Why can’t you just download an app or go to a meditation studio and practice meditation?

Authentic meditation requires an understanding of how the mind actually works. There are 3 systems of thinking and each system has its place in authentic meditation and in your life. We dive into these different systems of thinking and understand them. We then learn how to identify these different systems of thought while mastering the art of observation.

There is no way to apply authentic meditation unless you learn the principles from great teachers of this art. At the same time, you need to have a deep understanding of the way the mind works based on modern psychological principles.

Until you learn how to apply authentic meditation, you will continue to turn to distractions to deal with intense feelings and life challenges. We turn to food, alcohol, smoking, drugs and even sex because we don’t know how to manage our thinking and feelings systems. Authentic meditation takes you inwards instead of outwards.

Live Sessions

Practical Meditation

I spent many years training and practicing many different types of meditation. I will tell you clearly that most approaches are not authentic forms of meditation. They are either different forms of relaxing techniques or visualization.

In every session, we will spend 10 minutes listening to a meditation session being taught by Maimonides, Krishnamurti, Alan Watts, Mooji, and Eckhart Tolle. My approach differs from all teachers on some subtle points but you will learn important facets of meditation of what to do and what not to do from these teachers.

5 Modules

The Modules include live 10-minute lectures directly from the masters of authentic meditaton.

Module 1

What are our different systems of thinking and how can we identify them? You cannot begin to identify thinkng patterns until you are deeply aware of your different systems of thought.

10-minute session by Professor Daniel Kahneman

Module 2

What and where is the ego? How is it created and how does it funncton? Learn how ego can take you out of living in your reality. You cannot begin authentic meditation until you understand the concepts of non-dulaity.

10-minute session by Alan Watts

Module 3

Learn to sit in a state of being and experience. How do you let go of all the stories about who I am and anchor in the space of awareness? How do you address ‘mind storms’?

10-minute session by Mooji

Module 4

Understand why most methods of meditation are not really meditation at all. See how authentic meditation is a way of thinking and feeling throughout your day.

10-minute session by Krishnamurti

Module 5

Understand the difference between knowing and thinking. Being and analyzing. You cannot know awareness. You can only be it. Learn to watch thinking instead of thinking about thinking.

10-minute session by Eckhart Tolle
