WHAT WILL THE SESSIONS BE LIKE?
Each week we work on materials of the 6 "Fields of Human Endeavor" that make up the IL model. The first session will be an intro to the model as a whole and the last a review of lessons learned. Each session includes a guided meditation to experiment with the new meditation tool for the week.
Donato is very fun to listen to and great at breaking down ideas in ways that everyone can understand. He is also a good listener and very intuitive and compassionate coach. During lectures he will ask you to evaluate many aspects of your life to see how to apply these new concepts. The recordings were done live during a previous course, so you will get to hear other participants ask questions. These sessions will challenge you to look at what is causing dysfunction and guide you to a true understanding of how you got there and support you on how to move on.
WHAT STYLES OF MEDITATIONS ARE WE GOING TO COVER?
Donato focuses his practice on what he believes to be the simplest form of meditation: seated, silent meditation. He does not use mantras, or visualization techniques, However he will be using techniques from different schools like Japaneze Zen, Mindfulness and QuiGong, to help you build the foundation of your practice.
IS THERE HOMEWORK?
Yes! You go home with new techniques to apply to your life right away. Your homework is to become observant and to experiment like a scientist, writing in your journal any findings and questions that may come. Also, every week you will get a new 10-20 minute guided meditation recording to support the growth of your practice, which you can do daily or every other day (up to you).
WILL I GET PERSONALIZED ATTENTION?
This course is based on the recordings of previous live courses. So you will be a passive "part of the group". While you are progressing in the course, Donato will be reviewing your progress. Once you complete it you will get an online 90 minute private Integrative Living coaching session with Donato. You will schedule this during the last 2 weeks of the course, once you are familiar with the model. In this session you will get to review your work and get the extra help you may need to break through any limitations keeping you from the life you want.
I ALREADY HAVE A MEDITATION PRACTICE. SHOULD I TAKE THIS COURSE?
Yes! First of all, this is not purely a meditation course. Meditation is used as the tool/practice to develop Mental Presence, which is key to noticing what is really happening in your life, so you can change. Secondly, when are you ever done learning how to meditate?
I AM A FAST/SLOW LEARNER, WILL IT STILL TAKE ME 8 WEEKS?
The course is designed in 8 weeks to give you time to practice what is taught, so the classes are released every week (so, you cannot skip ahead). If for some reason you want to skip ahead, contact Donato and he will review your case. Also, if you fall behind (life happens), you can always catch up and move at your own pace.
I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS! IS THERE A FREE INTRO SESSION?
YES! You can see it on YouTube HERE!
