Meditation is one of the most natural and rewarding of all human activities. It gives direct, intuitive experience of higher realities, and is the cornerstone of true spirituality.
Each of us has a calm joyful center, deep within. It may get lost in the hectic pace of life, but it is there — waiting patiently for us. Meditation can help us rediscover that joy—and a rich, inner life.
When we bring body, breath, mind and heart into stillness…the peaceful state of meditation begins and the blissful experience of one’s true nature can unfold.
LEARN TO MEDITATE is a series of 4 classes
that is offered at ANANDA RI regularly
