[symple_divider style=”solid” margin_top=”10px” margin_bottom=”10px”] Meditation Mount was the creative idea of Florence Garrigue who lived at the Mount and oversaw all activities. The facilities were completed in 1971 under the direction of Zelma Wilson, Architect. coque iphone 6 Zelma sought to make the buildings reflect the spirit of the participants, and serve as highly functional structures attuned to their setting. Grant Castleberg of Santa Barbara served as landscape architect for the center. Florence, the Mount’s founder, came to Ojai in 1968 to establish a center for the work of Meditation Groups, Inc. which she had begun 10 years earlier in New York City. coque iphone xs max After selection of the site in the east end of the valley, she worked closely with Ojai architect Zelma Wilson in planning the beautiful Tibetan – style buildings and arranging the financing of the project with generous gifts from people who believed in the work of the organization. The center at the end of Reeves Road then became known as “Meditation Mount.” Their purpose was the fostering of meditation to benefit the world. They achieved this by using small booklets written on various aspects of spiritual topics, sending them by mail to individuals in a rhythmic pattern of every two months. Taking a step back into Florence’s past we can see how all of this evolved. When Florence retired in 1943, she moved to New York to join the Arcane school, an institution for esoteric studies founded by Alice A Bailey. After 10 years there, she and a group of friends started the School for Esoteric Studies in New York which is still active. coque iphone 8 She then became a member of a small informal group of individuals from several countries who met in England for the purpose of fostering meditation to benefit the world. They achieved their purpose by using small booklets written on various aspects of spiritual topics, sending them by mail to individuals in a rhythmic pattern of every two months. It was from this group and its concept that she returned and founded the US branch of Meditation Groups, Inc. Many of the booklets were written by Roberto Assagioli, an Italian Psychologist whose lifework was to bring meditation and spirituality into the realm of psychology and human development. In the mid 1990′s the distribution of meditation booklets was discontinued. Since that time Meditation Mount has functioned an educational center offering spiritual programs that enhance the awakening of the human soul in all aspects of social endeavor. coque iphone 8 Daily and Monthly Full Moon meditations continue to be an important part in the daily rhythm in the Mount’s life.

Makeover guru makes over meditation in new L.A. studio Los Angeles, CA (April 8, 2014) — A peaceful haven is emerging in a surprising location. As drivers whiz past concrete buildings on Wilshire Boulevard in West L.A., they speed by an oasis of calm they’d be delighted to discover. Hidden next to a courtyard, with a bamboo garden and 15-foot water fountain, is the perfect place to take a grown-up time-out. Starting April 15, 2014, unplug meditation will provide a serene studio where you can take a break from traffic, devices, kids and bosses, morning, noon and night. coque iphone 8 Suze Yalof Schwartz, whom the New York Times called “the fairy godmother” of makeovers, is now making over meditation. The busy mom and fashion editor was looking for a place to meditate but couldn’t find anything that fit her fast-paced life and high-end taste. She tried all the venues at which you could possibly meditate in Los Angeles, but instead of tuning into her breath, she cast her editor’s eye on all the things she could make better, from the spaces to the classes to the instructors. coque iphone 8 Yalof Schwartz wanted to merge soul with science, and balance the best of both. So she took over a dark, grey, head-hunting office and transformed it into a contemporary, clean, light studio for meditation. And she set classes for 30- and 45-minute intervals, so busy people could drop in, tune out the world and tune into themselves. “Can you meditate at home?” Yalof Schwartz asks. “Absolutely. Do I wish could? I could, but I don’t. I’m much better when I’m guided. And frankly, it’s a lot easier.” Yalof Schwartz wants to disprove the most common meditation myth: I can’t meditate because I think too much. acheter coque iphone en ligne The truth is everyone thinks too much and everyone can meditate. coque iphone pas cher It’s all about learning how to deal with those thoughts and move back to your focus point. “I’ve yet to meet anyone who has been able to stop thinking,” she says. unplug medition is a space for people who want to try out meditation and learn that they actually can do it. But it is also a great space for experienced meditators to get away from the world and be guided by exceptional teachers who understand real people. “Meditation has a host of scientifically proven benefits, yet so few people know how to do it,” Yalof Schwartz says. “I want to show everyone just how easy it is to learn, and how great it is for your mind, body and soul.” Opening April 15th, unplug meditation, 12401 Wilshire Boulevard, Studio 101, will offer daily classes at all hours, including lunchtime “quickies.” Clients can drop in and pay $20 per-class, purchase packages of 10 or 20 classes, or buy unlimited monthly memberships.
