Go on an inner vacation this summer! While our regular vacations can be fun, they can also be filled with frustrations, great expenses, and sunburn. Generally we do not return with anything that enriches our everyday experiences. With a little practice, we can learn to create “inner vacations” through meditation which actually have the ability to improve our everyday lives and bring authentic joy wherever we are.
Each class includes a guided meditation. No need to pre-register, just drop in as your schedule allows!
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.
Before Sharon moved to Asheville in 2011, she volunteered as the Education Program Coordinator for several years at Kadampa Meditation Center New York, where she also guided retreats and taught classes.
Today, Sharon is a part of the Special Teacher Training Program and teaches our Asheville branch class. Sharon and her husband have one son.
