Intro to Meditation 6 Week Series with Cynthia Henebry - Next session coming this fall !

Meditation is the art of allowing everything to be just as it is. This state of being allows the mind to deeply rest, and opens one up to the possibility of experiencing true freedom. Whether you are merely curious, just beginning, or have been practicing meditation for any amount of time, this series will support you in the art of pausing and “beginning again.” All that is needed is the commitment to show up each week. Classes will consist of a 30 minute guided sit as well as time for reflection and discussion.
