The True HeArt of Meditation
"There is a place between voice and presence
where information flows.
In disciplined silence it opens...."
Finding Stillness Within
Meditation is the mindful awareness of the stillness achieved through quieting the mind, revealing the Soul source within each of us. For centuries, Hindu Yogis, Tibetan and Japanese Buddhists devoted their lives to finding true happiness and health. With commitment and practice, we can all discover that same sense of deep peace and oneness with the World around us. Our vital, creative energy becomes our source of wisdom. Becoming mindful, moment to moment, as we choose each step, is the essential path to true, unshakeable Happiness.
This is an introduction to meditation practice, with a focus on how the breath, mantra, and quiet posture of the body, all work together to create stillness in the mind. With practice, the fundamental nature of the mind is understood and it’s unlimited source of energy becomes available to us to create the meaningful life we imagine.
But this will become YOUR practice. There is no one way to meditate…only the determination to practice to change your life.

Wednesday, December 21
8 - 11am
Come relax and unwind with the healing vibrations of quartz crystal singing bowls, gongs, tuning forks, drums and chimes.
Everything in the universe is composed of energy. As such, everything has a natural frequency vibration. Energy, light, atoms, molecules, and even our planet are vibrating at specific frequencies and thus producing “sound”. This includes every living cell in our bodies as well as the energy centers known as Chakras. Just like a musical instrument that emits sound, our chakras and our cells can either be in tune or out of tune.
Every cell and chakra center is naturally tuned to maintain well being and health. But physical, mental and environmental factors can interfere and cause these vibrations to go out of tune and into a state of imbalance. Crystal Singing Bowls are tuned to the body’s Chakra centers so, much like a tuning fork causes resonance to adjacent objects, when played, they help tune chakra centers to resonate in their proper, natural state. In doing so, they allow for the free flow of energy throughout the body, mind and spirit.
Saturdays 4:30 - 5:30pm
Sound + Sauna
