Description:Meditation is a widely utilized contemplative practice that supports our mental, physical and emotional bodies. It has the power to influence every aspect of our life and provides us with techniques to help deal with inevitable challenges. Mentally we gain concentration and mindfulness. Physically meditation reduces stress, a major component of disease. Emotionally we learn how to be with the ebbs and flows that are a guaranteed part of our existence by learning to rest our mind in a place of comfort and ease. Meditation’s continued success is due to its universal appeal to people of any culture or spirituality. It’s accessible to anyone living in a body, with a thinking mind.
This series offers a basic look at meditation including; comfort, concentration, breath and mindfulness techniques. We will address questions and difficulties that arise from our practice and offer simple solutions so that meditation is practical and accessible to everyone. Students will complete the series with a solid foundation in meditation and techniques they can continue to use on their own

We’d love for you to join us at Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort for a deeply nourishing weekend of yoga, meditation, mantra, sound bathing, philosophical yoga & shamanic musings, writing, and rejuvenation.
We have such a sweet connection to Sleeping Lady. Over the past couple of years, we’ve spent many days (and several nights) taking pause at Sleeping Lady. It’s a physically, spiritually, and energetically stunning place with incredibly high integrity. We’re so excited to connect with you in this mountain oasis (in our new home town!) for a weekend of turning in, tuning in, and settling into a crystal clear ground of being.
