Intro to Art of Meditation
Have you ever wondered what prevents each of us from living each moment fully and with joy? Often, we may feel that the mind is just too busy, too tired or too overwhelmed by thoughts. However, a simple, powerful technique of meditation can quickly calm the mind. Even if you feel like you cannot meditate or are often overwhelmed by your “monkey mind”, millions of meditators have found it is possible to experience a calm and centered mind on a regular basis. In this interactive information session, find out more about the Art of Meditation course taking place in Ottawa. Truthfully, anyone can learn to meditate. The key to success is a powerful technique, experienced guidance and some practice. In the Art of Meditation course, you are offered all this — you work personally with an experienced teacher, learn a technique you can practice at home, and receive individual guidance during the critical first few days of practice. After the course, you will have the knowledge and experience to calm your mind and launch a lifelong practice.
