HOW TO START YOUR MEDITATION PRACTICE

Each of us has a calm joyful center, deep within. It may get lost in the hectic pace of life, but it is there, waiting patiently for us. Meditation, introspection, and other yogic practices help us rediscover that joy—and a rich, inner life. Experience the benefits of meditation in your life.

Learn the essential tools for an effective meditation practice in our classes taught by experienced meditators. Whether you are new to meditation or wanting to inspire your current practice, we are pleased to support your process.

Learn to Meditate is offered as a 3-class series on Tuesdays every month except December.
