An Experiential Journey Into Meditation Techniques

Mike Cummings.jpeg

Each class will focus on a meditation technique from various traditions. We will explore the use of breathing, postures, chanting, affirmations and visualizations in different combinations in order for participants to have a full experience of the impact of each technique on them Physically, Emotionally, Mentally and Spiritually. The goal of each meditation session is to provide an environment where active participation in the techniques allows this evaluation in order to determine its value as a daily practice. These sessions are designed for meditators of all levels, including beginners, who are interested in study and practice of meditation techniques from various traditions.
