Balanced Mind Meditation 101
Offered the first Monday every month. 6:30-7:00 P.M with Merry Woodruff
The Balance Mind Meditation 101 class is for those contemplating meditation, but not sure how to begin a practice. Meditation practices have been gaining attention in the west over the past 10 years, and we often hear about the physical, psychological and emotional benefits that meditation can bring. Yet many believe they do not have the time or attention span to meditate, or that their monkey mind is too hyper for such stillness. This class responds to those myths and will help you uncover the mysteries of meditation and how to build a practice. Time will be allotted for questions.
