Meditative Rituals for Living Well:
An Online Journey
August, 2020 - January, 2021
“There is such a powerful eloquence in silence. True genius is knowing when to say nothing, to allow the experience, the moment itself, to carry the message, to say what needs to be said. Words are less important, less effective than feeling. When you can sit in perfect silence, you truly know how to communicate.” Richard Wagamese
We all hold the potential to sit in sacred silence. We can all tap into our capacities to be more kind, to heal, to honor the sacredness of each day and to experience wellness in body, mind and heart. Yet we only use a small fraction of the potential we have. That’s what meditation is about: to nurture and cultivate the qualities we hold within that lay dormant. To develop the skillful placement of our own attention to the best of our own potential, so that we can live well.
Join me online for this uniquely curated program! You'll learn effective tools to begin/deepen a meditation practice, paired with complimentary breathing techniques and simple daily rituals to amply your connection to yourself, the environment and the universe. In addition to lots of in session practice, you will also receive a 6 month home program, monthly live online sessions which will include lecture, discussion and Q & A, plus pre recordings of each month's breathwork and meditations.
