EXPLORE THE TRANSFORMATIVE POWER OF 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, and difficulties. This course, divided into 6 sections of 3 classes each, will provide practical methods and meditations for improving our minds and transforming our lives into a blissful journey towards lasting peace and happiness.
Drop in for $15 per class
$40 for 3 sessions (Each “Section”)
Free for Centre Supporters.
