In this class participants will:

  • Enjoy approximately 30 minutes of guided relaxation while lying down, and 30 minutes of seated meditation.
  • Reconnect to body, inner world, and relaxed, open states.
  • Experience the difference between identification with mind, and the simple experience of being.
