Japa Meditation with Ann

  • Learn and practice this form of meditation which focuses the mind on a mantra that is repeated once for each bead on a mala, a string of one hundred and eight prayer beads. This month, Ann introduces you to the mantra, Om Gum Ganapatayei Namaha. There will be a discussion on its meaning in our Yoga practice and daily lives and instruction on using a mala to count the repetitions. This form of meditation is particularly useful for those who have trouble keeping the mind from straying off during meditation practice as it uses a tactile focus, fingers on the beads, as well as a mental focus, thinking mind on the mantra. Bring your own mala, or purchase one at Dew. Meditation is by donation of any amount to the instructor. No experience is necessary, all are welcome.
