A 6 week exploration into the fascinating, fun, healing world of meditation.
I know you have many questions about meditation. I did. I’ve been a meditator for about 8 years, off and on. I liked it but I didn’t love it. I was meditating because I knew it was good for me. And then I discovered a style of meditation that fits me like my favorite sweater. The perfect weight, the perfect color, the perfect yarn. And after 2 years of meditating in this style I feel happy, joyful and have fallen in love with life!
You have already experienced moments of spontaneous meditation when you have witnessed a beautiful sunset, looked into the eyes of your grandchild or enjoyed a fantastic meal with friends. In this workshop we will remember what we love to do and then build skills to deepen your inner peace. You have access to this peace whenever you want for meditation happens one moment at a time.
Your health will improve, your sleep will be more restful, you will manage your stress in a healthy way.
Some of the questions that will be answered during this workshop:
What is meditation?
Where did it begin?
How do I know if I’m doing it “right?”
How can this simple practice possibly help me in my daily life?
How do I get started?
What’s a meditation technique?
How do I know which technique is right for me?
What will happen when I meditate?
We will meditate together. I will guide you some of the time and some of the time you will meditate on your own. It will be easeful, relaxing, interesting and healing.
In the spring of 2019 I will be finishing my 200 hour Radiance Sutras Meditation Teacher Training. I am filled with a deep gratitude for the brilliance and knowledge that my teachers have shared with me. Dr. Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine are the authors of several books on meditation and breathing. Meditation Made Easy will be a nice companion to Meditation 101.

Yoga as we practice it in the West is a dynamic, active practice designed to work only half of our body, the muscular half, the “yang” tissues. Our bodies need stability and strength. But as we age our flexibility diminishes and our vitality diminishes if we are not actively stressing our yin tissues.
Yin Yoga is is a static way of being in yoga poses for longer periods in order to better nourish the deeper connective tissues and organs. It is a perfect opportunity to soften and cultivate your mental state as well, allowing the energy body to redistribute vitality throughout our system.
