Participation Guidelines

Following are the guidelines which I suggest we follow…

  • Please post all comments, questions and feedback of a public nature in the comments section of this post.  This way all will benefit from the discussion.  Feel free to ask questions or discuss issues, as that is one of the main reasons for this particular class format.  Of course, you are free to email me as well if you would like the discussion to not be public.
  • If you like, you can indicate with a comment that you have completed your daily session.  Could be as short as “did it”, or of course could be questions, issues or more detailed feedback.  The hardest part with a daily yoga and meditation practice is establishing consistency and regularity and I think having to acknowledge that you completed your daily sadhana (spiritual work) will help in facilitating that.  In addition, your comments could inspire others as well. 
  • I will post all information regarding the class in the comments section below as well, so please check periodically for updates.
  • Before starting your daily yoga and meditation session, take a moment and tune in to your higher self for guidance and protection.  At the end of every session, visualize yourself and the world as you would like it to be.
  • Do the best you can and modify the class as you require.  It is more important to do something, than be overwhelmed or not do anything at all.
  • I wish you all a wonderful learning and transforming experience.

    Hi H,

    One of the best techniques for developing mastery over the mind is Zazen (Zen Meditation Technique), which is part of this course. After that, you can move onto the more advanced form of insight meditation (Silent Mind Meditation Technique).

    Another good meditation for mastering the mind is Trataka.

    Don’t worry about how far you have to go, just keep at it… no one knows the future or when the breakthroughs will happen. Negative thinking is of no value and only adds more obstacles. Trust yourself.

    Let me know how these work out for you.

    Best,
    Anmol

    I didn’t get to start the class until this morning. I woke up at 5am all by myself without the help of any alarmclock and got to the execises. But as I have done some yoga and meditation before I seem to have a bit of a problem clearing my mind. Any tips? It’s slowly getting better, but I have this unnerving sense of doubt that I have a long way to go. I’m day by day letting go of living in the mind, but it’s a long prosess. Any daily execises recommended for this?

    I’m currently reading a book of Osho’s prescious words, and that is helping me move focus elsewhere than the mind, but still – if you have any exercises to supply I’d love to hear about them

    Hi Michele,

    Thanks you for your feedback and kind words.

    At this early stage, let the tension come and observe what happens to it. If it’s due to incorrect posture it needs to be addressed, if it’s due to tensions and stress being purged, we need to let it run it’s course. In a week or so we will have a better idea.

    How old is your daughter? Please recommend the following 2 breathing exercises to her…

    1. Easy Breath Meditation for Relaxation

    2. Chakra Balancing Pranayama (Anuloma Viloma)

    Zazen also is very good for long term peace and tranquility.

    All Good Wishes,
    Anmol

    Hello Anmol
    I started your course with Brendan and after 5 days I must say I feel terrific with a lot of energy I didn’t have before as well as a certain clarity. I am trying hard though having no experience of yoga and meditation I am aware I have a long way to go! About the ZaZen meditation, Halfway through, I become aware of my body (shoulders especially) being very tense, should I relax or ignore it? Our daughter is very stressed, is there a course or meditation you would recommand?
    Your pages are a gift!

    Hi H,

    Any reference is fine, after all your true nature is timeless, infinite, eternal and nameless.

    You have made a very brave and difficult decision, one that most are unable to. I am glad to have such a person as part of the website and classes.

    Let me know if you run across any issues with the classes, and best wishes on this new journey you have now begun.

    Cheers,
    Anmol

    Greetings,

    I’ve been reading your pages a few days now and decided to join your class starting tomorrow morning.
    I recently turned my life upside down, in a good way.
    Quit my stressful and very timeconsuming job which I wasn’t really enjoying anyway, moved out of the big city and back to my hometown. It feels great and my focus is completely on ME. Making sure I have a good life right NOW instead of constantly chasing all my opportunities in the future. I’ve quit the vicious circle of working hard and ignoring my feelings now so I can make it big in the future.
    This involves a new found respect for myself, and a clairity I always knew I was capable of, but never really explored.

    Thank you for the great service and updates. I’m looking forward to this journey further inside myself.

    I hope it’s ok that I sign off with ‘H’ instead of my full name as I enjoy my privacy.

    Best regards,
    H

    Hey Steph,

    Glad to see your life opening up. I have seen it so often where as one’s internal pathways start to open up, opportunities simply start to flow as well.

    1. Here is my favorite mantra for expressing gratitude. It is presented in both English and Sanskrit.

    Tvameva Mata Mantra for Expressing Gratitude

    2. Travel & major changes tend to derange Vata Dosha (Introduction to Ayurveda) so during such times try to do what helps you…

    – stay calm
    – keep away from excessive cold
    – avoid cold and raw foods
    – eat hot foods, spicy is ok
    – get into a routine as best you can
    – practice yoga in a steady, gentle way that helps you stay calm and grounded.
    – practice meditation, such as so-hum mantra meditation which helps you stay connected.

    All the best with your new adventures,
    Anmol

    Hello Anmol,
    I’m still at it! and I’m happy to say that the job interviews not only went well, but I was offered the position I wanted. The job involves a major relocation (to Vietnam from Germany) and I’ll be having a medical exam for my visa so I can get my fluttery feeling checked out.

    So a couple of questions:
    1. I’m so happy and grateful for this opportunity. Is there some special exercises I can do to express gratitude?

    2. Since I’ll be moving in about a month, I was wondering if there were exercises to welcome/manage major life changes?

    Thanks for all your help.
    Steph

    Hi Reba,

    It’s actually a tricky little problem. As your practice deepens though, this will be less of an issue, as you will start to get a good sense of how much time and effort you have put into any given exercise, with the primary gauge being how tough it gets.

    In class, I only keep track of time for pranayama exercises as I want to help the students develop that capacity systematically, all the other exercises one just develops a feel for.

    I though use the “song time” on my stereo system when I need to keep track of it. It works ok, until the track finishes of course :-).

    If other ideas come to mind I will be sure to reach out to you with them.

    Glad to hear the yoga is starting to work for you.

    Best,
    Anmol

    I have been doing this now for several days, and also using a DVD with PM exercises at night, and my moods and energy are completely changing. I am also finding no desire for coffee in the morning, and that 4:30 glass of wine to get me through the end of the day. One thing I am having a little trouble with is sustaining activities without knowing how long I have been doing it, etc…..I find myself thinking of the time, and looking at the clock, etc…. I do much better with DVD’s because I don’t have to think about it (like being in a class). I have been using a Ravi Singh one. Do you have any suggestions on how to keep track of time for sustaining things?
