Meditation can be used to improve your life and can be practiced anytime and anywhere. Meditating for just one minute before you head out in your car can make the driving journey a pleasant experience; meditating outside, in nature, can unleash an overwhelming sense of peace; meditating for just a few minutes before going to bed can allow you to relax and fall asleep quickly; and if you’re adventurous you can tap into the deeper levels of your subconscious, to heal or to open your creative talents. This workshop will teach you several methods to stimulate brain waves, priming your brain for meditation.Earlt Bird registration $30 before April 15 after $40.
