Meditation in Daily Life

"Meditation in Daily Life" Courses:
Meditation is a natural ability of the human mind. Meditation practices are 'tools' for training the mind, enabling us to expand awareness, to experience deeper states of wisdom, peace and harmony, to connect with the spiritual dimension of Being, and to meet the variety of challenges in our daily lives more skillfully, intuitively and creatively.

The emphasis of these courses is on experiential learning, and on promoting and increasing ease and well-being in daily life, using 'tools' and techniques that are natural, practical, and effective. The orientation is non-denominational.

Meditative Yoga:
This style of Hatha yoga is gentle, enjoyable, and refreshing. It is designed to release stress, to expand awareness, and to promote, vitality, flexibility and relaxation. It is ideal for mature figures, fuller figures, and beginners.
