Explore the Transformative Power of Mindfulness and Meditation
How to become the positive, peaceful and loving person you always wanted to be.
In our busy lives, we often don’t see the connection between our state of mind and our daily experiences. When our mind is peaceful, our world is joyful but when our mind is disturbed or agitated we easily experience problems, stress, anxieties and difficulties. Join us on Saturday mornings when we will explore practical methods and meditations for improving our minds and transforming our lives into a blissful journey towards lasting peace and happiness.
