Meditation is a form of prayer.  However, instead of speaking to God, we quiet our minds and we listen to what has been called “that still small voice.” Actually it is a feeling a presence as real as our very breath, it is our very breath. “Be Still and Know That I Am God” Psalm 48:10

In the stillness of meditation, you become aware of this Truth. In the silence you  come to realize without question that there is only one life, that life is God’s Life that Life is perfect and that Life is your life. There is no God and me.  There is only God in and as me. Living through and from me.   In meditation you tap into the infinite presence, wisdom, power, and love of God, and are guided and directed by the Divine on how to utilize these attributes in every aspect of your life right here on earth.

In physical fitness you are taught a variety of ways to stay in shape, cycling, aerobics, treadmill, etc.  We tend to stick to the exercise we enjoy the most while receiving the desired benefits.

Meditation is a form of spiritual and mental fitness.  In this workshop you will be taught  various meditation techniques, such as silent, guided, movement, laughter, mindfulness.  As in physical fitness you will naturally be drawn to the technique that works best for you.

Also like physical exercise, consistency is key to receiving the utmost benefits in meditation.

Meditation relieves dis-ease of the Spirit and Mind which helps eliminate diseases of the body. You will be introduced to many benefits of meditation: spiritual, mental, and physical.
