Monthly Meditation Session

Monthly Meditation Session

Share

Meditation & mindfulness have so many benefits that science is just starting to uncover.  In the fast paced and overstimulating modern world we live in, taking some time out for some time in is becoming increasingly needed.

You’ll only experience the many benefits of meditation by actually doing it regularly though.  Just like you need to exercise if you want to get fit.

Jen will help you develop your own regular meditation practice and understand why it has the power to change the quality of your day to day life.

If you’re like most people and worried that you can’t meditate because your mind is too busy, or you can’t stop your thoughts … then don’t be.  You can read an article Jen wrote about this here, and you’ll learn more at the course.  So please don’t let that stop you.  You’ll be fine 🙂

No experience is necessary, and in fact, having a beginners mind is a bonus.

The focus of the course is experiential.  Each class includes a meditation and some discussion time.  The theory is covered to give you a greater appreciation for what meditation is and isn’t, which will help your mind relax and trust the process more easily when you do actually meditate.

The atmosphere is relaxed, easy going and friendly.  There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and they are encouraged throughout the course.  You can sit in any position that is comfortable for you.  Chairs and cushions for the floor will be available.

Here’s what you’ll learn and experience …
