Meditation: A 6 week Journey


This class is full ! Please email me if you are interested in signing up for a another section of meditation. Please check back later this winter we may offer a second class..


You will learn what Mediation is, how it will benefit you and how to do it.

Meditation is a daily practice of sitting in silence that takes you to an awareness that is not thought. This is a consciousness or awareness separate or different from thought. Most people don’t even know this reality exists.

Don’t worry!  You won’t stop thinking completely. But your thoughts won’t be in control anymore. Instead of the tyranny of thoughts, a deeper, more peaceful reality will start to grow inside you.

 What you experience as real:  We discover that real does not mean the thoughts that dance through our heads. We discover a reality that is loving, intuitive and peaceful. As we keep practicing, we begin to see both ways—the same old thoughts and also a new, tender, powerful reality.
