  • Active Meditation

  • Active meditations open the body and mind and are based in the understanding that contemporary people cannot just sit down and enter a state of meditation or inner stillness as our lives are more restless than ever before. During this meditation, in the first phase we shake and move the physical body, then in the second phase we sit in silence and watchfulness.
