One Day Meditation Workshop for All ~ with  Mary Paterson 

Saturday, May 13th from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Maximum participants = 12

 "It’s well-documented that our cortex shrinks as we get older – it’s harder to figure things out and remember things. But in this one region of the prefrontal cortex, 50-year-old meditators had the same amount of gray matter as 25-year-olds."  
Sarah Lazar PhD,  Harvard Medical School

Authentic meditation practices are expert guides to realizing the true power of your mind and extending the brain's youthful activity no matter your age. In this course, using sacred meditation techniques, you will be guided toward experiencing deeper transformative states of meditation ~ the ones that keep your brain young and agile and capable of producing great things!  Meditation is much more than stress-reducing, and depression-busting, and anxiety-killing. While those benefits are wonderful, they are just the tip of a great iceberg of power, once you begin meditating regularly.
