Join Julie Franklin for an opportunity to step away from the complexities of daily life and journey inward. As the mind settles, we are able to see the ways in which our reactions to our thoughts can create suffering, and how maintaining an awareness of the present moment opens us to a sense of peace and refuge, even while facing tremendous difficulties. Together we will practice mindful movement, followed by various mindfulness techniques with a short guided meditation for each.
Meditation and mindfulness is an ancient technique that has recently been scientifically proven to decrease the production of the stress hormones, cortisol and adrenaline in the body, decrease blood pressure and hypertension, lower cholesterol levels, increase the production of the anti-aging hormone DHEA, decrease insomnia, decrease feelings of loneliness and isolation, and improve cognition in those who practice regularly.
This is an all-levels workshop, beginners and experienced meditators are equally welcomed. $35
