No chanting, no visualizing. Just you learning how - and why - to use your breath as a tool to focus the mind.
As much as many of us love wine - or running, or sleeping, or what-have-you - to de-stress, it doesn't actually change how you deal with or handle things. And, when stress or an emergency strike, wine or a run aren't always immediately available (or appropriate). Your breath always is.
Meditation is training your mind to be calm and focused under any circumstances. It literally (i.e., there's scientific evidence) re-wires your brain to be more calm, more productive, more creative, and even have better relationships.
This brief program provides a full scientific and historical background on the practice of meditation, providing participants the rationale to sit quietly each day, when there are so many other pulls on your time.
Most importantly, we teach the mechanics of a proper practice, with multiple opportunities to apply learnings throughout the class.
The training lasts approximately 90 minutes. Tea reception to follow.
