Meditation Workshop ($20)
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13TH 3-5PM
Beginners and Experienced Meditators Welcome!
This 2 hour workshop will guide new students (and serves as a refresher class for experienced students) into experiencing and potentially establishing a basic mindfulness meditation practice of their own. The class will begin with approximately 10-15 minutes of basic yoga postures to awaken the spine and release any major tension that individuals are feeling upon arrival. Approximately 30-40 minutes will be spent discussing the roots of meditation, Christine’s approach to the practice, and discussion of meditation ‘technique’ or practice guidelines. The second hour of the workshop will be guided practice - first walking/moving meditation, then sitting. Q & A will end the workshop.
