Ruth O'Donnell instructs the following:
Don't just do something.... sit there!Join your fellow Yogis for a time of sitting together and cultivating mindfulness. Every Monday morning after the Silent Class, we will explore a variety of meditation styles/techniques and support each other in practicing ways of connecting with our true nature (inner self) (inner wisdom). There will be time for instruction, discussion and of course, practice. Everyone is welcome - those with little or no meditation experience, as well as those with much. These sessions will provide an opportunity to develop or deepen a practice for enriching your daily life.There is no charge or fee for this class.
