ancient tools for modern times
In 2020, everything changed on many levels and I found myself on a new journey of learning how to teach online. It looks simple on paper, and yet every step I encountered yet another learning curve! I've been busy studying, practicing, and teaching.
I decided to focus my programming on one of my favorite meditations, Kirtan Kriya. It had been a longtime dream to create my own recording for KK and I achieved it this summer.
What a fun creative process!
In my research I found the Alzheimer's Research and Prevention Foundation website and recently graduated from their Brain Longevity® Therapy Training.
You can learn more about this program here.
To read about the extensive research you can read the ARPF White Paper here.
It's no secret that I LOVE Kirtan Kriya! I share it with new students as well as seasoned meditators. One thing we all share is life in an uncertain modern world. This digital age is taking a toll on our bodies and minds and it is more important than ever that we slow down and learn to observe and guide ourselves towards balance.
Kirtan Kriya is a 12-minute singing exercise that people have been practicing for thousands of years. It brings together several actions: breath work, singing or chanting, finger movements (mudras), and visualization.
It is a multifaceted, multi-sensory exercise that engages the whole brain and increases cerebral blood flow.
I've created an audio download to guide you through this 12 minute Brain Boosting Meditation.
