Would you like to try meditation, but you’re not sure where to start? Join us for a weekend of lighthearted and joyful practice aimed at developing and expanding your meditation experience.

In this meditation workshop, you will:

  • Learn simple and time-tested techniques to help you develop a regular and enjoyable daily practice routine
  • Try several different types of meditation and choose the one that best suits your personality, taste, temperament, and lifestyle
  • Meditate in a variety of settings and become aware of how your environment affects your experience
  • Discover the spiritual, psychological, and medical benefits of meditation
  • Learn how neuroscience supports the ancient practice of meditation

Time will be allotted for group meditation practices and space will be available for questions and answers. If you are really inspired, you will also have the opportunity for private meditation coaching (available for an additional fee).

This is the perfect weekend for anyone who is new to or has never tried meditation. Come experience the peace and joy of meditation. Hope to see you there!
