MEDITATION 4-WEEK GROUP

Termed "Sunday Morning Art Church" by former participants, this workshop series will explore a number of different meditation and mindful practices. Even those with no meditation experience will learn how to still the mind and be fully present in the moment. Current brain imaging research has demonstrated how daily practice can decrease symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression and increase a sense of well-being, compassion and empathy. This is a great chance to sample techniques and develop a resource base for home practice.

  • 4 Week Series
  • Sundays 7/16 - 8/06, 8/27 - 9/17
  • 9:45am-10:45am
  • Led by Carolyn Wagner
  • $50 per person
  • maximum of 12 participants
Meditation with Carolyn Wagner

Participant testimonial:

I could not be more appreciative of Carolyn Wagner's work as a guided meditation practice instructor.  Carolyn offers those in her classes an opportunity to open and train their minds to be still.  The benefits of this are not well understood by most of us. I was brand new to meditation when I started with Silver Circle's Sunday morning program.  After each session, I feel as relaxed and at peace as one does after a one hour body massage!  And no one is massaging anything but the mind and spirit!  At a fraction of the cost of a massage, no less!!  I now practice meditation for at least 10 minutes each day and plan to take part in the next session at Silver Circle. This choice is a direct result of the clarity of thought, peace in stressful situations, gratitude, and awareness that I am gradually gaining from the practice.  Just learning to breathe and allow...it sounds so simple but somehow we have to actually learn this art today.  You never know until you try!  I encourage all of my friends and family who are stressed or battling chronic illness to give this class a chance to help better their life experience.
