Members Only- Mindful Meditation

“When the flow of distracting thoughts subsides and the mind becomes still, a deep sense of happiness and contentment arises naturally from within.” — Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Mindful Meditation is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental, and emotional experiences. Practicing mindfulness helps to reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being. Join us to soak in the art and find a place of calm.
