ONLINE COURSE | Meditation for Everyone

with Rev. Sumati Govinda Steinberg, RN, BSN, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT

June 8 - 10, 2018

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

In this online 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—by meditating in a variety of settings, you will 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, there will be time in your schedule for private meditation coaching (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!


I love how she weaves the wisdom of the ancients into her everyday conversations, not in a heavy-handed way, but off-the-cuff, as if she has known these sacred truths forever.  Sumati is a gem! — Meeraji Kerr

Sumati is a cheerful example of generosity in service to her family, the residents and guests at Yogaville, and the surrounding community. She has studied the teachings of Integral Yoga since her childhood, and integrated them in her life in times of joy and challenge. She teaches from that authentic place of wisdom. — Swami Vidyananda

Sumati was such a pleasure to learn from—she is a light in the classroom, a light as a person and she lives what she teaches. I would recommend anyone who is looking for introspection to consider this course with an open mind. She is great!! — Alicia B

Rev Sumati is astonishing in her ability to explain in plain English concepts that are otherwise difficult to understand. — Past Participant
