Meditation by Donation -- The 9 Basic Personality Structures

IMG_1472.JPG

Each month we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month will benefit The Warm Place.

Meditation: The Nine Basic Personality Structures  

Our ordinary experience is often clouded over with aspects of our personality that interfere with our ability to see, think and behave objectively.  When we practice meditation, we seek to quiet our personality (which includes our habitual way of thinking, our instinctive reactions to challenges and our heart’s confusions) and make contact with our deeper, more objective, essential self.

In our May practice, we will begin a practice series designed to help you explore, through mudras, mantras and movements, a more objective version of yourself and your potential. Over the course of several bi-monthly practices, we’ll use the well-known system of the Enneagram to gain a deeper appreciation of the nine personality styles that color our lives, and the nine corresponding essential views of reality.

Our May practice features the Enneagram Type Eight personality: the powerful, dominating, self-confident, willful and confrontational part of ourselves. We’ll explore some of the main features of this part of personality, including its core function of protecting the self. We’ll discuss how the features of this type often can inhibit true freedom of being, leaving you angry, willful and vengeful, or inform you, leading to true strength, resilience and self-surrender.

We’ll work with several mantras, a mudra and a yoga pose, each designed to evoke what is essential and objectively true about this aspect of our true nature. The 90 minute practice will include a discussion as well as several short practice sessions and a 20 minute meditation to bring the elements of discussion and practice together.

July’ s practice will feature Enneagram Type Nine: The Peacemaker

September’s practice will work with Enneagram Type One: The Reformer

November’s practice will feature Enneagram Type Two: The Helper

January, 2018: Enneagram Type Three: The Achiever

March 208: Enneagram Type Four: The Individualist

May 2018: Enneagram Type Five: The Investigator

July 2018: Enneagram Type Six: The Loyalist

September 2018: Enneagram Type Seven: The Enthusiast

Your host for this practice is Terry Stevens. Terry has been immersed in the human potential movement for much of her adult life, as a business leader, writer, teacher, executive coach and a student of The Diamond Approach. People appreciate the blend of backbone and heart that characterize Terry’s coaching style. She brings a variety of movement, inquiry, adult learning models and meditative practices to support clients in accessing and growing their personal presence, the foundation for sustained purpose and practical, elegant functioning in the world.

Embody Love Movement Facilitator Training

Dr Tiffany Denny will lead a 15 hour weekend workshop for self-empowered women who feel inspired to provide Embody Love Movement® workshops and programs in their communities. 

Dates and Times:
- Fri Sept 1 5-8p
- Sat Sept 2 12-6p
- Sun Sept 3 9a-4p
 

What is a Facilitator?

Facilitators are women who lovingly share Embody Love Movement’s revolutionary programs in studios, schools, camps, community centers and other non-profit organizations. The workshops that they facilitate focus on emotional expression, exposing media myths, changing the conversation from criticism to kindness, and recognizing self-worth and purpose.

How facilitators make a difference:

This training provides facilitators with the ability to inspire girls and women who participate in our programs to:

♥  Value who they are internally over their external appearance
♥  Be empowered to change the conversation from criticism to kindness
♥  Stop comparing themselves to a false idea of beauty and to others
♥  Find inspiration to embrace their purpose in the world

The weekend immersion will include:

♥   Participation in an Embody Love Workshop led by A Certified Trained Faculty Member
♥   The being and doing of facilitation: holding safe space
♥   Projection, transference, and shadow work in groups
♥   Using yoga as a tool to find and keep body acceptance
♥   Finding your voice and sharing your truth: story telling that heals
♥   The detriments of body shaming and comparison
♥   Teaching media literacy and demystifying standard of beauty
♥   Practice, practice, practice of facilitation through role play
♥  How to spread the LOVE revolution to your community

A Guided Process to Certification:

While exhilarating and empowering, facilitating can sometimes be tough. We get it. Holding space for girls and women can bump up against some of our own insecurities. Because of this, our certification process includes a mentoring component. After your training, you will participate in two mentoring sessions with your CF-T so that she can answer any questions that you may have about the process of facilitation, setting up workshops, building community, etc. Our mentoring process gives you the opportunity to grow and learn from the guidance and support of our experienced facilitators. 
* Please note that these mentoring sessions will be an additional cost to the training and fees will be paid directly to your CF-T.  
 

Bringing ELM to Your Community:

Once you have participated in Facilitator Training, you will be able to start hosting workshops in your community. You will have the knowledge and skill set to offer various curriculum to various groups of individuals. Your niche will arrive if you let it unfold.  

Our financial model allows facilitators the freedom to set their own price for each workshop provided, with the understanding that a percentage of income will be donated back to Embody Love Movement. This model empowers you to draw in what feels right to you and, at the same time, give back to the organization so that we can continue to offer and deliver to the greater whole. Facilitators are also more than welcome to deliver workshops at no cost and volunteer their time. We hold no expectations regarding which path you choose for any given workshop.

Each month we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject.

These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month will benefit the Whole Heart Yoga.

Give Freely

During this month’s meeting we will discuss Generosity and its display on and off the cushion. We will examine the many ways one can offer generosity and it’s effect on our overall gratitude. We’ll also discuss how generosity is an effective antidote to unskillful and excessive desire. After our evening’s discussion, we’ll put generosity into practice through a guided meditation that will last 20 minutes.

Our host this evening is A.J. Fichera, who has been a Buddhist practitioner and meditator for over 14 years. He was formerly a student of Vietnamese Zen at the Quang Chieu Monastery which led to the teachings of Ajahn Geoff (Thanissaro Bhikkhu) in the lineage of the Thai Forest Tradition.

He seeks in his own practice to achieve well-being through solving the mind’s problem of creating stress and suffering, brought on by our own thoughts and actions. He takes joy in introducing people to the benefits of adopting a meditative practice for themselves and others, which in turn, helps reveal the wisdom and compassion that leads to lasting well-being.

March 8, 2017 is International Women's Day. All across the country, women and allies will mark the day by recognizing the enormous value that women of all backgrounds add to our socio-economic system--while receiving lower wages and experiencing greater inequities, vulnerability to discrimination, sexual harassment, and job insecurity.

Meditation by Donation - with AJ Fichera

Each month through the end of the year, we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month, donations will go to Whole Heart Yoga Fort Worth.

Choosing Metta With Meditation

In this class we will discuss the attitude of “Metta,” it’s intention, and how we can utilize it in our lives and meditative practice. Metta is a pali word that translates to loving-kindness or goodwill. Metta isn’t simply wishing others to be “happy” or that “we’ll always be there for them.” It’s a wish for others and us to find and act upon the causes of well-being and true happiness. As part of the 4 unlimited attitudes outlined by the Buddha, Metta is an attitude we can cultivate both on and off the meditation cushion. We will explore both its inclusion into meditation and it’s use in our day-to-day. After our evening’s discussion, we’ll put Metta into practice through a guided meditation that will last 20 minutes.

Our leader this evening is A.J. Fichera, who has been a Buddhist practitioner and meditator for over 14 years. He was formerly a student of Vietnamese Zen at the Quang Chieu Monastery which led to the teachings of Ajahn Geoff (Thanissaro Bhikkhu) in the lineage of the Thai Forest Tradition.

Practice Meditation -- Meditation as a Portal to Our Essence

Each month through the end of the year, we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month’s donations will support The Ridhwan Foundation, which is the non-profit organization supporting the teaching of the Diamond Approach®.

Meditation as a Portal to Our Essence

Meditation offers many benefits, but perhaps one of the most profound is the access it can give us to a deeper experience of the essence of who we are. Join us for an evening of exploration about what this might mean for you, and how you can access the riches of your depths.

Your host for tonight’s practice is Chuck Anderson, a spiritual seeker for more than forty years.  He is an ordained teacher of the Diamond Approach®, a spiritual path for realizing who you truly are, and living as an expression of that in the world.  Chuck has been a student of the Diamond Approach for the last twelve years, before which he was a practitioner of Siddha Yoga and Transcendental Meditation.  He primarily devotes his time to working with individual students in spiritual insight sessions, supporting the teaching in Texas, and preserving the canon of the Diamond Approach®.

 

The Diamond Approach®, developed by the renowned philosopher and teacher A.H. Almaas, is taught in groups and to individuals around the world.  More information about the Diamond Approach is available at www.diamondgulfcoast.com, www.ridhwan.org, and www.ahalmaas.com.  Chuck Anderson can be contacted at ckanderson91588@aol.com.

Science of Calm

Stress-management, relaxation, and developing emotional stability are key factors to staying healthy and maintaining an excellent quality of life. We all know this, or have heard it at one time or another, but what is the science behind it, and how can we realistically fit these practices into our busy lives? These are the questions that we will delve into throughout the workshop.

The Science of Calm, intentionally placed during the heart of holiday season, will be a combination of lecture, meditation, asana practice, and discussion. We will cover the science behind stress, overwhelm, anxiety, chronic fatigue, and their remedies, including a discussion on our autonomic nervous system and its relationship to other systems in the body. Then, with an enhanced understanding of the importance of nervous system regulation, we will delve into the practical ways we can work on this regulation every day, injecting calm into our lives little-by-little until it becomes part of us.

Led by Dr. Tiffany Denny, this workshop is excellent for anyone needing more resources for stress-management in their own life, but would also be great for yoga teachers interested in learning more about how to help our students regulate their nervous system through our weekly yoga classes.

Practice Meditation: Fabricating the Breath in Meditation

Each month through the end of the year, we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month will benefit the Tarrant County Area Food Bank.

Practice Meditation: Fabricating the Breath in Meditation

A great instructional session for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Prior to our meditation we’ll discuss the process, benefits, and ways we can fabricate our breath and breath energy during our sits. Fabrications serve as a skillful vehicle we can create to garner our concentration around our breath and it’s connection to our mind and body.

What are Fabrications?
• Constructs and perceptions we willfully create around our breath and breath energy

What are the different types of Fabrications?
•  Verbal Fabrications - “Self-talk”, directed thought and evaluation
•  Bodily Fabrications - Manipulating in-and-out breaths ie. shallower, deeper, texture, etc…
• Mental Fabrications – Perceptions and feelings around breath and breath energy

Why use Fabrications?
• Train our self in mindfulness and concentration
• Create an internal and pleasurable experience to outweigh distracting and unskillful sensory pleasures
• Learn how our mind creates and fabricates our experiences
• Utilize ingenuity to self-diagnose and remedy discomforts and distractions

Our host this evening is A.J. Fichera, who has been a Buddhist practitioner and meditator for over 14 years. He was formerly a student of Vietnamese Zen at the Quang Chieu Monastery which led to the teachings of Ajahn Geoff (Thanissaro Bhikkhu) in the lineage of the Thai Forest Tradition. He currently facilitates a secular meditation group in Fort Worth called “Admirable Friends”, which introduces and instructs its participants to meditate and uphold the values of the Thai Forest Tradition. He seeks in his own practice to achieve well-being through solving the mind’s problem of creating stress and suffering, brought on by our own thoughts and actions. He takes joy in introducing people to the benefits of adopting a meditative practice for themselves and others, which in turn, helps reveal the wisdom and compassion that leads to lasting well-being.

Explore Your Shadow Within

We all have a shadow or “dark side” as every life has been touched by anger and fear. In this 2 hour workshop we will discuss what is the shadow and come to understand how it serves our life. We will release the idea of things being inherently “good vs. bad”. We do not need to demonize the dark part of ourselves as it’s the source of every challenge worth facing. Bringing our shadow into the light will transform the way we see ourselves, others and the world. Understanding our shadow will give us the tools to connect to ourselves on a deeper level and learn why we do what we do.

Led by Kasey Bell, this workshop will be part lecture followed by a slow flow and restorative yoga practice ending with an introspective meditation to connect to our shadow self. Included is a free crystal that we will use in our yoga practice and meditation, a worksheet to take home for further self study and resources if you want to explore more. 

Regular price is $35.

3Tree Yoga unlimited member price is $30.

Practice Meditation -- Learning To Pause

Each month through the end of the year, we will be hosting a skilled, practiced, meditation teacher so that you have the opportunity to begin or deepen your meditation practice with someone experienced in teaching the subject. This is not a series, so you are welcome to any or all of the practices, and no experience is necessary to benefit from and enjoy the sessions. These practices are by donation, and the money will support a local non-profit. This month's donations will support The Presbyterian Night Shelter.

We may believe that a serious meditation practice requires 10… 20… 30 minutes our more of practice daily. And while it’s true that a consistent daily practice for a sustained period of time will do much for you (and those around around you), you can meditate any time simply by pausing. In the busyness of our day, it’s easy to lose touch with ourselves and our ability to respond appropriately to situations. An irritation becomes road rage, a disappointment turns into an excuse to overeat, a question becomes a problem. This meditation will introduce you to a one minute practice that you can do at any moment during your day to re-establish balance, focus and ground.

Your host for this practice is Terry Stevens. Terry has been immersed in the human potential movement for much of her adult life, as a business leader, writer, teacher, executive coach and a student of The Diamond Approach. People appreciate the blend of backbone and heart that characterize Terry’s coaching style. She brings a variety of movement, inquiry, adult learning models and meditative practices to support clients in accessing and growing their personal presence, the foundation for sustained purpose and practical, elegant functioning in the world.
