Meditation Is Not What You Think a 4 Week Course with Ed and Deb Shapiro
A 4-week course with Ed and Deb Shapiro on discovering the greatest gift you can give yourself: meditation. Clear your mind, open your heart, and dive into the wonder of your own true self. Starts July 09!
From running an orphanage to being a political adviser, from being held in a prison cell to living in a crowded city, meditation changes people’s lives.
Meditation is simple and transformative, yet often misunderstood. Some think it is controlling the mind or stopping thinking, while others see it as both weird and wacky or boring and meaningless. Many ‘try’ to meditate but their minds are so busy they get frustrated and believe they can’t do it.
Yet meditation just means being present and aware. It is being with yourself completely as you are. If the mind is thinking then you are aware of the thinking; if the body is moving then you are aware of the movement. So there is sitting meditation, sound meditation, walking meditation, even running meditation. It is not purposefully doing anything other than being here.
And just this creates an inner spaciousness in which you can let go of the endless ‘me-centered’ dramas. It reveals the quiet that is hidden beneath your busy, chattering mind that keeps you endlessly engaged. Transform stress and habitual tendencies and embody greater peace and unconditional happiness.
Meditation is truly the greatest gift you can give yourself. There is nothing more beautiful. Join Ed and Deb Shapiro in this 4-week course to dive into the many possibilities that meditation offers you!
