8 Session Series… Learn the Art of Meditation
Meditation has become a popular tool for stress reduction & relaxation. The Western Medical Community, both the GP & the Psychotherapist, prescribe meditation to eliminate the symptoms of acute stress, depression, anxiety & chronic pain. However, meditation is for much more than just stress reduction. It is the dynamic key for unlocking much healing, happiness and success within your life.
The Secret: to unlock any treasure you must have the right key. The key that works for your treasure box!
This is why many find the act of Meditation challenging – they were not given the right “tools” in the first place. Many more still are not really sure what meditation looks like, how it works or why they should even bother with it. If you are one of these people or you want to deepen your Meditation practice then this program is for you.

I found this class challenging at first but I feel great having persevered. Meditation has brought such a calming to my over all life. I find the Affirmation Meditation works best for me.

Learn the Art of Meditation
I was diagnosed with Clinical Depression in 1996. I was told that I would require medication for the rest of my life. I refused that – that would not be my fate. It wasn’t easy; but it was worth it. I searched for years for the tools that could be my medication – that created balance, peacefulness and clarity. I found Meditation. This IS my medication. I am so very, very, very grateful for Meditation and all of the gifts that a daily practice has brought to me. I wish this for you. Namaste.
