A Daylong Meditation Workshop with STEPHANIE NASH
In this workshop we will explore how the body affects the mind, as well as how the mind affects the body. We will also explore how we can mindfully tune into always available pleasant sensory experience and “accentuate the positive” – to gain more appreciation & satisfaction from our moment to moment experience. The day will include guided meditation, discussion, and a bit of fluid movement in a warm, friendly environment.
