Instruction and practices to help you return to calm, balance, self.


Aim of the sessions:

To provide a basic introduction to a modern approach to meditation and mindfulness and the benefits it offers physically, psychologically and emotionally.

To give instruction in a variety of techniques aimed at generating calm, balance and restoration in the mind/body/energy system and to enable a deeper inner practice.
