Do you know what you are?
You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.
This universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself;
everything that you want,
you are already that.
LEARN TO MEDITATE with a CALM class...
Create A Luminous Mind!
A calm and peaceful mind is everyone's birthright. But the many and varied distractions of life often cloud our ability to reside in that space. Meditation and mindfulness practices are the single most effective tool that I have found in my life to achieve that peaceful center from which we all can operate and begin to know ourselves better. The beautiful thing is...once you learn to meditate you will always have this to anchor you. You can meditate almost anywhere and it is freely available to you! I truly believe that, like me, you will find that it's one of the best things you ever did. My heart's desire is that you will continue to develop your practice and contribute to peace and possibility...for yourself, and because of you, for the world.
The CALM Method is a fun, casual half day class (or sometimes a series over a few days) that takes the mystery out of meditation and mindfulness and lets you explore many different aspects of meditation and of yourself. You'll learn the what, why and how of meditation and how to incorporate it into your life. Expect your class size to be 10 people or smaller. This gives us the opportunity to really get to know each other and for us to really dive deep with your questions and with our practice that day. And you don't have to sit like a pretzel on the floor...chairs and meditation cushions are provided.
You'll leave knowing more about and having experienced...
Why you're not the only one who can't stop all the thoughts!
Why meditation works and what research is showing about it's effectiveness.
That there's more than one way to meditate! It's not a one size fits all practice.
Open Awareness, Gratitude Meditation, LovingKindness Meditation, Breath Awareness
What Mindfulness is and how to develop a formal practice.
How to make Mindfulness a part of your life, all the time.
How to develop a practice that you'll stick with.
How you can lead an examined life with meditation.
How meditation can help you be more calm, heart-centered and more present with everyone.
Please let me know if you would like to have a private "learn to meditate" half day for your group in your location.
