Balancing our Mind and Emotions

Through practicing meditation, we learn to develop and hold positive and peaceful states of mind even in the most difficult situations.  Since good mental health comes from positive states of mind, meditation has great power to improve our mental health.

Everyone can learn the methods that free us from negative emotions, making joy, happiness and meaning our everyday reality.  Come to any class you like or sign-up for the entire series!

Sep 14 ~ MEDITATION, HAPPINESS & MENTAL HEALTH

Meditation makes our mind calm and peaceful.  When we are peaceful, our mind is positive and free from worries and other mental discomfort.

Sep 21 ~ FOCUSED OR FRANTIC

Why is it so difficult to maintain a continually peaceful and joyful mind?  This is because of the distractions that so often crowd our mind.  Learn how to reduce mental busyness and distraction and let go of worry and anxiety.

Sep 28 ~ CRITICISM OR KINDNESS

Everyone has the capacity to tap into an endless supply of inner peace and kindness.  Discover how to replace negative and judgemental attitudes into warmth and friendliness.
