The Fulcrum in the Middle. The final part of the Whizz through the Universal Teachings, is known as the law of the pendulum and acts on absolutely everything in our minds and in our lives. The meditation is about finding the neutral place in the middle. This meditation contains the essence of Alex's book ‘The Inner Power of Stillness'.

Meditation on Compassion / Heart Field Meditation. The seventh in the universal teachings series is working with our heart field. Science now has shown that the heart emits an electric field about 60 times greater than the brain in its amplitude. The magnetic component of the heart is 5,000 times stronger than the brains – making it the strongest field in the body! A coherent and strong heart field meditation is so important for our own health, as well as the peace of each other. A peaceful and tranquil heart knows how to radiate compassion, and this meditation creates coherence in the magnetic field of the heart by increasing vagus nerve tone.

From Alexander's series, 'A Whizz Through Universal Teachings', this short meditation is to acquire stillness as a felt, embodied memory by establishing the still-point in the centre. This meditation takes us out of the linear dynamic of everyday life, allowing us to interact with the events of life, without losing our connection to our deeper sense of self.
Mindfulness Meditation on the Elements
This beautiful, simple meditation class focuses on mindfulness of the body as experienced through our elemental constitutions of earth, fire water and air, space and consciousness. The Buddha taught about elemental practices as a way to train attention but also to wake up the fluidity of our changing experience. Just as the elements of the natural world dance in an ongoing interconnectedness and ongoing state of change, we can also begin to become aware of our body and our experience of it through the elements with us and all around us.

Universal Teachings 1: Introduction and Stillness Practice
Alexanders meditation series, ‘A Whizz through Universal Teachings’ is based on the universal teachings which aim to further our inner evolution. Universal teachings are comprised of truths that, once applied and put into action, facilitate change and ultimately lead to our personal transformation This timeless and entirely practical knowledge is not based on a religion, philosophical system or belief. Universal knowledge surrounds us wherever we go, we only need to be receptive to it. It is transmitted through the arts, science, poetry, music, architecture, literature, philosophy and of course the nature all around us. The main objective of universal teachings is to transform us into a more balanced and compassionate person also known as ‘the middle person’. The teachings facilitate us through a process through which we transform into what we are supposed to be in our innermost ‘essence’. Living and interacting through essence that lies above our fluctuating personality, we will ultimately be able to live and fulfil our purpose.
