Tuesday Classes

Meditation
Meditation has been defi ned as a way to quiet the mind, connect with our inner self, and even heal our body. It has been used for centuries within most spiritual and religious settings. In the Western world it is being accepted not only as a spiritual practice, but also as an adjunct to other therapies to treat chronic pain, lower blood pressure, even treat PTSD. It is a useful tool for everyone to disconnect from the constant barrage of emails, negative news, and traffi c jams. Carol believes daily meditation provides her with insight into different levels of consciousness. After experimenting with other forms of meditation, today she primarily uses a technique classifi ed as “open focus”. She looks forward to sharing her love for this calming and lifeaffirming practice.
