TIBETAN MANTRA MEDITATION
Learn through sacred art about Buddhist deities and their mantras for meditation. This session will offer practices of visualization and sound vibration to call on spiritual qualities we would like to cultivate in our life.
SUNSET WALK & MEDITATION
Take a breath of fresh air and enjoy silent meditation and reflection outdoor in nature. Wander about and wonder about the beauty of the earth, wind, sky, trees, and animals.
Enjoy and relax to the sounds of harmonizing bowls and serene musical instruments. Allow the mind and body to soften, as your spirit travels to restful and ethereal realms. Participants will lay down for most of the practice, and/or be guided through restorative postures with supportive props.
This class incorporates resting postures on the ground that utilize multiple props for added support. Allow yourself to rest and experience the art of relaxation.
YOGA & MEDITATION
Learn to use yoga as a means to quiet the mind and come into stillness. This final class will bring all of your learning together and bring it home with you.
