What is Dru Meditation
What is Dru Meditation?
Dru Meditation is about finding a still inner point from which you can look at the world in a different way and discover a fresh, new perspective on your life.
You'll discover powerful breathing techniques (pranayama), kriyas and concentration techniques.
Dru takes you deeply into the science of meditation...
Discover your inner stillness
In Dru Meditation you will learn to access a deep inner peace, no matter what challenges you may be facing in life.
Dru takes you deeply into the science of meditation, showing how to bring your awareness from the physical body, through to the deepest layers of your being. Dru meditation uniquely makes a focus of the five koshas, which are the different levels through which we experience the world.
What makes Dru meditation special?
So you’ve tried a few types of meditation, and enjoyed the stress-relieving benefits. But have you tried Dru Meditation yet? And do you know how Dru Meditation is different from other styles of meditation?
We like to define meditation as the perfect balance between alertness and relaxation. It doesn’t matter if you practise in a chair or sitting cross legged on the floor, it’s all about quietening the mind and stilling the body. Dru Meditation, in common with many other types of meditation, starts with this gentle awareness of the body and breath. This mindful awareness reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, chronic pain and insomnia. You can experience these health benefits at Dru Meditation retreats or workshops.
Dru is a fast track to feeling balanced and more at peace with myself after a busy day of demands at work. I can also use short sequences or breathing techniques to centre myself during the day.
Stages of Dru Meditation
The next stage of Dru Meditation takes us from just observing our mind to understanding the vast landscape of our consciousness, described in the yogic tradition through models such as chakras and koshas. If you attend the Dru Meditation Foundation course, you will learn this more refined level of practice, to help you understand how the body, energy, emotions and thought are linked.
On the Meditation Training course you will experience the third stage of Dru Meditation – where you will learn to transform your consciousness, learning to become the master of your emotions and mind, rather than the victim. You’ll learn advanced breathing techniques, mantras and kriyas which will empower your strengths and help you to deeply know yourself. At Dru we continue this process with the advanced course, Steps to Enlightenment.
Dru Meditation and the five koshas (levels of consciousness)
Anamaya kosha (physical body) – using mindful awareness, you will learn to sit comfortably and relax at will, balancing the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems so you remain alert yet relaxed.
Pranamaya kosha (energy body) – powerful breathing techniques such as Sama vritti, the three fold breath and Savitri pranayma will enable you to build up your energy and health.
Manomaya kosha (emotional body) – Dru’s kriyas and meditation techniques will help you become the master of your emotions, enabling you to access passion and willpower so you can choose how you feel in any moment.
Vijnaanamaya kosha (intellectual body) – Using the ancient power of mantra and japa, you will awaken your inner wisdom body, where intuition and your life’s purpose become clear.
Anandamaya kosha (blissful body) – using Dru’s subtle meditation methods, you will experience the joy of your higher self, however you perceive it.
Starting Dru Meditation
The best way to start learning Dru Meditation is by attending a workshop or meditation retreat, either in beautiful Snowdonia or around the UK. If that's not practical, then try a guided Dru Meditation on CD. No matter how you start, you'll find that Dru Meditation can help wash away stress and fatigue and bring calm and focus. Even 10 minutes of meditation a day can make a huge difference. And it doesn't need to be uncomfortable, boring or weird - try some Dru Meditation here to find out!
If you're already a fan of meditation and would like to take it a bit further, then consider the Dru Meditation teacher training course - enabling you to become a meditation teacher yourself.
