Have you tried meditation and found it too hard to sit still with so many thoughts rattling around your brain? Maybe you’d like to meditate but don’t know how to start. And possibly, you have questions: like, why meditate in the first place?
In this 3-week class, Minute Meditation Method, you will explore these questions and hopefully start on your way to realizing you are more than your mind or body. Within you resides a well of compassion, forgiveness, unlimited patience, and unconditional loving. The access door is your Spiritual Heart Center.
We will learn a simple, yet profound practice that begins with a minute twice a day and allows the sitting time to expand naturally at your own pace. One minute is all of eternity when resting in the awareness of your Spiritual Heart Center area. You have nothing to lose and possibly everything to gain.
