This year I was astounded by how much more instruction I was able to give to aid in the relaxation and self awareness than any other year. Last year I attended a meditation program as well as multiple classes for educational meditation. These classes imparted knowledge and applicable exercises that help before meditation as well as in their everyday lives. The difference was notable in the reactions of the students. Theses students are also very interested in this method of prayer which aids in their level of engagement.
If you have never meditated before you should. Earth and Spirit has introductory classes coming up soon. Those are the classes I attended and they are well worth the cost and the time. Many of the ideas changed my behavior and attitude. It is important to reflect on our growth each year and appreciate changes.
