Intro to Meditation Practice

Curious about meditation? Tried it before but looking for another chance to dive in? Here’s your chance at a very special Intro to Meditation Practice class.

Spillian is delighted to introduce Brynn Yeager, an American Meditiation Society Certified teacher, as she offers a 2 hour dive into meditation on Monday, July 27 from 10-12.

 

About the Class

Meditation is a simple and effortless process where you connect with the silence and peace within yourself. You connect with a deeper level of yourself, the stillness within, and gradually over time, you begin to live from a place of steadiness and inner peace.

A meditation practice is beneficial in many ways including reducing stress,normalizing blood pressure, enhancing creativity, and much more. Meditation is a way of reaching and directly experiencing the depths of who you truly are, taking you from a limited, conditioned mind and into your heart.  Practices are taught step-by-step, and you are led gently and gradually based on your own experience. This intro class will give you the tools to continue on the path toward full practices or a good base for a regular practice.

This two-hour course will be an intro to the basic practices taught by the American Meditation Society. AMS offers full practices that are well balanced and designed to accommodate those with a busy schedule. The full practices include a range of practices that promote balance through opening the heart and focusing the mind. In this course, we will be covering a basic relaxation technique and mantra meditation. All levels of meditators are welcome!

Monday, July 27 from 10 AM to Noon
$10 suggested donation.
