Do you ever feel you want to do something - ANYTHING - to make the world more loving? Practicing love and compassion and directing it to those you care about, people in your community, and all beings everywhere - yourself included - is one way that meditators can help create peace in the world.
In this 90-minute Loving Kindness Meditation experience, you will learn about this ancient and powerful meditation technique. There are many ways to do a loving kindness meditation and I will share with you what I have discovered works best. This experience is great for anyone with an interest in meditation - newbies, daily meditators, and everyone in between.
Sitting amongst the glorious Sedona scenery and powerful energy, we will begin with a grounding exercise which will help you to anchor your energy and be more fully embodied for our experience. I will share with you a few guidelines designed to help you meditate better and deepen you understanding.
You will be guided through a 25-40 minute loving kindness meditation (the duration is flexible according to your experience and comfort) which will allow you to practice what you've learned and help sow the seeds of peace in yourself, your family and friends, and the whole world.
You will enjoy the experience of sitting with a kind and caring meditation teacher who will help broaden and deepen your understanding and lovingly guide you through a very special meditation while holding space for you. It is the meditation experience of a lifetime!
