A Weekend of Meditation focusing on Peace and Joy – everybody’s New Year’s Resolution.
Let’s take these two days to get in touch with and deepen into what brings our hearts alive; making conscious more meaning and value in our lives.
The first day – Saturday – we’ll employ some well known and effective tools that release us from our tangles and struggles, subsiding the tension and drama inside our hearts/minds. The second day – Sunday – we’ll delve more deeply into ways to usher in to our awareness the sacred, the valuable, the meaningful, once there is some space in our hearts, and a malleable enough mind to follow our guidance.
