About This Event
Join Yogaville’s senior sannyasi (monk) and beloved teacher, Mataji, for a basic meditation workshop to establish and develop your practice.
A calm and focused mind can achieve anything. The beautiful science of concentration provides perfect tools to reach that profound state of being, beyond the normal awareness, called meditation. With sincere and regular practice, it can be experienced.
Meditation soothes the mind, reduces stress, and brings you in touch with the peace within. It provides documented emotional and physiological benefits which enable you to become the master of your own mind.
Experience the benefits of meditation as you learn:
Daily life as a preparation for meditation
Ways to develop a ‘be here now’ consciousness
Joy in learning and transforming oneself
A variety of approaches as you begin a meditation practice
Regardless of your previous experience, you will go home with knowledge and inspiration to develop mental clarity, calmness, and concentration that can lead to success in all areas of life.
Everything was wonderful. Mataji is a great yogi master. She teaches extremely well and it is a joy to be in her presence. — Past Participant
The meditation program—excellent. Swami Mataji—most interesting and an excellent speaker. Thank you, thank you. — Rebecca Kinkead
