Universal Teachings 3: Mindfulness : Gaining a greater Perspective
Universal Teachings 2: Manifesting Stillness
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.

What on Earth is Meditation all About?
Most of us plunge into 'meditation' without even asking the fundamental questions; WHAT actually is it and WHY on earth might they want to do it. Others are scared of even trying because they don't understand WHAT or WHY and yet more give up too soon because they think that they are rubbish at it, probably through misunderstanding the 'WHAT'!! In this lighthearted chat, Dan asks the questions WHAT is meditation? WHY on earth would we want to spend time practising it? And if we decide that its for us then HOW might we go about starting.
