Guided Group Meditation 

Do you find meditation challenging? Mysterious? Meditation has a calming effect on the nervous system that helps us relax, breathe better, and makes it easier to shift out of “stress mode” and into the natural state of rest and healing. It’s so much easier to meditate with a group, easier to get into it, easier to stay focused and relaxed, and the effects last longer. Join our 6 - week meditation experience to learn what to do about a busy mind, then you can meditate anytime, anywhere. Scientific evidence shows that meditation is extremely beneficial.
