Bodhi Meditation - Flushing (FREE)

Bodhi Meditation Center

Come and experience how this unique meditation can help you purify your body/mind and unleash the creative power within you. * Increase self-awareness * Stronger emotional intelligence * Greater mental clarity, focus and inspiration. Bodhi Meditation Energize your body Strenthen your mind Bodhi Meditation is a form of energy healing. Bodhi Meditation is unique in the following ways 1). It channels universal energy rather than working with what’s within one person. It transcends the genetic and physical limits of just one being by relying and drawing energy from the entire universe. 2). The entire human body is the receiver of this energy. The energy’s effects on the body do not rely on certain meridian paths or pressure points of the body, which are the common requirements for many types of the Qi Gong practices. Group practice sessions are led by experienced meditation instructors who will guide you through the meditation, answer your questions and provide energy blessing.
