Mindfulness and Mantra Meditation, All Levels, Beginners Welcome
Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 pm
In my class, I will draw from the spiritual traditions of Tantra and the Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. I will guide students in both mindfulness and mantra meditation techniques. My class is for those who are seeking inner peace and spiritual awakening, and especially for those who want to maintain an active meditation practice at home. In my experience, there are only two secrets to a successful meditation practice: a time tested technique and a regular practice. A regular meditation practice brings us into a deep, spiritual flow. This inner flow and union, according to yoga, is our perennial source of contentment and peace. All levels are welcome.
