Shodaigyo Meditation Basics

with Krista de Feijter

The basics of Mindfulness Meditation.

In mindfulness meditation, you pay attention to your thoughts as they pass through your mind. You don’t judge the thoughts or become involved with them. You simply observe and take note of any patterns. This practice combines concentration with awareness. You may find it helpful to focus on an object or your breath while you observe any bodily sensations, thoughts, or feelings. Think of this practice as an exercise for general well-being to taste the preciousness of life. If your well-being increases, the total well-being of this world also increases. This is a very important concept in Nichiren Shu Buddhism.

Mindfulness Meditation Series

In each class we explore mindfulness using mindfulness meditation called Shodaigyo. Shodaigyo guides participants through three forms of mindfulness meditation as well as the reflection on the meditation experience itself. Each session includes a calming meditation, chanting meditation, and an awareness meditation, guided thoughtfully by Krista.

All classes are live, right here on the membership site (Zoom has been integrated), in your personal classroom. In addition, members have access to four recorded prior sessions, so they can continue to follow a guided practice with Krista.

Wonderful sessions. Krista leads us through a calming meditation practice which soothes the soul. She has a thoughtful and insightful manner which invites reflection and solace. I highly recommend La Ronge Enkyoji.

An amazing four-week meditation course! Suitable for new practitioners and old hands alike. Krista is a gentle, highly compassionate and extremely capable teacher! I could not recommend this or any other course from La Ronge Enkyoji Cultural Centre enough.

Krista creates a safe and loving space for this meditation class. It totally relaxes you yet at the same time gives you space to experience your inner self. I would recommend this class to anyone wanting the experience in a very gentle and non judgmental way.

I highly recommend meditation classes with Krista. She is extremely kind, patient, open, knowledgeable, and has a soothing voice. Now is the time to prioritize self-care and wellness; this class is a very important part of my own wellness and self-care regime. Bravo, Krista, for sharing your gifts and talents.

When working with Krista the word that comes to mind is safe. Her sessions are supportive, calming, and healing thanks in large part to her ability to help those she works with feel safe allowing them to surrender to the process. She has an open heart and truly cares for the people that she works with. I cannot recommend Krista and her work enough!
