Tantric Meditation with Gregor Maehle
Gregor teaches two meditation systems side-by-side, yogic and tantric meditation. Similar to our asana and pranayama practices so also yogic chakra-Kundalini meditation is very structured. While yogic meditation is a very transformational and powerful technique, some students struggle with its rigor and demands for concentration and visualization. If we experience a lot of pressure in our lives and minds the simple but effective tantric meditation techniques can be useful.
This workshop is based on meditation techniques from an ancient text called the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra. This text came down through Kashmir Shaivism and contains 112 dharanas, what we today would call meditation techniques. Many of today’s popular meditation techniques were already introduced in the Vijnana Bhairava.
Most of these tantric meditations are much simpler than yogic meditation and require less effort. There are also many different techniques to choose from. Here is a sophisticated approach that offers a great variety in case a particular technique doesn’t work for a student. This makes this system very adaptable to individual needs and preferences.
During demanding and stressful times, emphasis on these meditations can create more headspace and nurturing. During other times when more certainty and inspiration is available, this can then be invested into the transformational power of yogic meditation. Hence the two systems work excellently side by side and can easily be integrated with each other.
