"Inner Balance Meditation" is a virtual space dedicated to sharing conscious, meditation-related and/or non-affiliated (no specific religious orientation) but spiritually uplifting and nourishing opportunities with the larger Chicago and suburban (north and northwest) community.
INNER BALANCE itself is a physical space that is dedicated to encouraging conscious, compassion-filled, vital lives. Classes, recurring events and a range of coaching and therapeutic treatments are available at Inner Balance in Northbrook and Chicago. Many events are free or donation based. More information about Inner Balance can be found at www.innerbalancenow.com.
A monthly 90-minute guided meditation session, open to the public, is led by Ellen Radha Katz, psychotherapist and meditation teacher. Each week is unique. The session often begins with gentle breath awareness and/or yoga based stretching for centering, followed by a deep guided meditation. Other instructors contribute to the sessions, in such areas as Mindfulness, Chakra Balancing, Present Time Consciousness, Jin Shin Jitsui, Reiki, Kirtan (bhakti yoga through devotional chanting) and other practices.
At times this Meetup will share information about a program that is happening elsewhere but may be of interest to some of the Inner Balance Meetup members. They are endorsed by this Meetup.
Ellen can be reached personally for further information here as the coordinator, or at her website: www.ellenkatz.net.
