Meditate, Share, Connect, Explore, Grow

Optional Posture Clinic & Meditation Instruction is at 7:00 PM.

At this meeting, our friend Bruce will be the speaker: “I will share how my daily practice of gratitude has changed how I live my life, transforming me from a negative perspective to one of acknowledgement, acceptance & celebration of what it is I have right now.  This shift for me has been as powerful if not more than meditation in itself, culminating in an increased state of mindfulness."

Hope to see you there :-)
