Meditation: A Practical Approach - Saturday 7PM Sanctuary
"If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. "- A. Huxley. Shining a new light on the subtle workings of brain chemistry, super powers, and how the mind affects your matter, and super powers, this class breaks through typical frills and common stereotypes to learn the science of, and inspiration for, a personal meditation practice- how to start an individual practice, how to rekindle yours, reaching new levels of awareness, preventing plateaus, and expanding vision. And super powers. Please bring comfortable nesting paraphernalia for being seated at length.
