This meditation series will be emphasizing the deeply relaxing and profoundly illuminating meditation on the nature of the mind, which gives us deep insight into our pure nature and great potential. Each class will highlight a different way in which we can use this meditation to deepen our understanding of how our minds create our experiences, and consequently how we can creatively and meaningfully relate to both painful and joyful emotions.

No need to attend each class or preregister for our weekly meditation in Asheville classes, just drop in as your schedule allows. Everyone is welcome!

Class Format

Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation to reduce stress and calm the body and mind. There will then be a short teaching on how to apply meditation to daily life to increase our positive minds and decrease negative minds like stress and anger.
