Bliss Meditation for Mood Management
Live music by Savitur.
While mindfulness meditation has become a widely used remedy for mood dysregulation, many people—particularly those with trauma histories—are too agitated to tolerate sitting quietly and watching their breath. In this LifeForce Yoga Bliss Meditation, Amy will guide you in “giving the mind a bone,” using breath and the chakra system to focus the mind, so that mindfulness naturally arises. The Bliss Meditation is one of many evidence-based protocols in the LifeForce Yoga toolbox that can help you manage your mood, calm your jitters and get a good night sleep! Amy teaches these practices to healing professionals internationally. She is happy to be back in Tucson to join you in this sacred gathering and facilitate a practice that has helped her heal from her own mood disorder.
Sacred Space is a secular and interfaith community in Tucson for personal and community growth where all are welcome to gather weekly for inspiration from the world’s spiritual traditions, varied local musicians and speakers, and community connection. Coupling contemplative wisdom with research-based practices, Sacred Space also offers small groups and classes, all with the aim of bringing together inner resources to drive social change.
The Sacred Space mission is to cultivate compassion and be a source of public renewal and contemplative education so that we can increase our capacity to work together toward collaborative solutions. This work is based in the current global movement for building compassionate community which is dedicated to generating understanding and cooperation between people of all backgrounds and beliefs.
