Advanced Mindfulness Meditation Course: Module 2 Deepening Concentration
Practice focused module to help you increase concentration by providing extra support to your meditation practice
About the Meditation Concentration Module
Deepening Concentration is Module 2 of the Advanced Mindfulness Meditation Course. It is a practice focused module to help you increase concentration by providing extra support to your meditation practice.
Having gone through the 8-Week Mindfulness Meditation Course, you are already convinced about the need of a regular meditation practice. However, this is not easy given that very often the mind stays distracted and body stays dysregulated just as a result of going through a fast paced and, stimulation-intense life.
Both these tendencies of the mind and body can be helped through certain support practices sharing which is the purpose of this module.
Also, the module focuses on deepening awareness which is necessary to get closer to our true nature. Concentration is a very important aspect of developing awareness. Human beings exist in a continuum of gross to subtle layers. The gross layers are relatively easy to become aware of. However, the subtle layers of energy, mind, wisdom and joy come to awareness only when attention is refined and focused and concentration is deep.
In order to arrive at such concentration, one needs to learn to regulate the body and energy all the while working kindly with the mind. This module tries to create a helpful path of practice that addresses ease of body, regulation of the breath and subtle energy adjustments that can lead to a more focused meditation.

Inspiration for the Deepening Concentration Meditation Module
This module draws inspiration from two spiritual traditions:
The Buddha's Noble Eightfold Path
The Buddha spoke of three trainings of the Noble Eightfold Path. Namely Shila, Samadhi and Panya/Pragya. This module draws on the Samadhi aspect. The Shila aspect has been covered in a separate module, i.e Qualities for Well-being Module.
The Yogasutra's of Patanjali
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali Speak of the ashtanga path or the path of eight limbs where Maharishi Patanjali has traced a seeker’s journey from establishing important qualities (yama/niyamas) to realizing one’s true nature (Samadhi). This module draws on limbs 3 through 6 i.e. the limbs of asana, pranayama, Pratyahara and Dharana.
