Misconceptions of Meditation:
There are many misconceptions about meditation. It is not a red light stop sign for body, speech and mind, to sit and do nothing, be silent and say nothing. To quiet and think nothing. It is a method to awaken the innate wisdom from within us, create awareness and create joy and happiness from within.
It is our birthright to be heathy and successful for our benefit and the benefit of all beings. We are often waiting for something or someone to make us feel alive, to find joy and bliss when we already have access to these in and around us.
Meditation and yoga have a profound capacity to both prevent and heal mental and physical discomfort and illness.
Join us on this wonderful voyage weekend. An inner voyage to the beautiful Heart Island at the very center and core of your being. The beautiful Lotus Island that is within us all.
