Change Your Mind, Change Your World: New Approaches to Life, Love & Happiness

We often try to change our life “from the outside in.” However, sometimes we may change our job or ourChange Your Mind, Change Your World living situation only to find that we are still dissatisfied with our life. During this meditation series, learn how to change “from the inside out.”

By changing our mind and learning to be more peaceful, loving, and positive, we can learn to be happy whether or not our life changes externally.

Just drop in, no need to pre-register. Everyone welcome!

Class Format

Every class will begin with a brief introduction, followed by a guided breathing meditation and the Liberating Prayer. After meditation, there will be a short teaching and time for Q&A.
