Would you like to increase your resilience, optimism, self-awareness, ability to focus and attend?
Are you interested in lowering your blood pressure, sleeping better, feeling less threatened, being less reactive, increasing the length of the telomeres of your cells, giving your immune function a boost and improving your health in general?
All of the above benefits, and more, are now scientifically noted outcomes of a daily sitting practice. Because meditation takes you to a core consciousness it also can help you become unstuck from default actions and patterns of thought so you are more open to possibility, less a bundle of conditioned reflexes, more creative and more conscious in making choices.
Meditation, or sitting and listening within, is a beautiful, cross-cultural wisdom practice. Some of the traditions are over two thousand years in practice and teaching.
There is no one way or right way to meditate. In my classes I work to demystify the art and practice of meditation. I share various and practical approaches for calming your mind so that you may experience the quiet already present within you. I provide basic tools that support you in establishing and maintaining a daily meditation practice that works for you and supports you in your goals. I also provide an opportunity to experience support in community with weekly drop-in meditation classes.
Beginning and advanced meditation classes are offered throughout the year at Aslan Institute in Eagan. Private individual and group sessions are available upon request.
