August Meditation Schedule

"Life Is A Progress, And Not A Station." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do you sometimes think that meditation is just sitting still for awhile? Maybe so ... the physical body is quiet ... the mind is calm ... but in that peaceful stillness the spirit opens and grows wide with all the fresh, new space that the quiet allows. So, I guess we could say, with thanks to Emerson: "Meditation is a Progress, and not a Station."

Meditation practice will be at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio (145 Byrd St, Orange) on the following Sundays:

  • Sunday, August 2
  • Sunday, August 16

The one-hour practice begins at 5:00 p.m.

Our practice includes guided meditation, a brief reading, walking meditation, and a quiet sitting practice. No previous experience is necessary, just an open heart and the desire to find stillness within. (We have pillows for floor-sitting and chairs available. Or bring your favorite meditation cushion.)

There is no cost to attend, but donations are gratefully accepted to help cover expenses at the studio. For more info click on "meditation" on the right-hand column under "Topics", and, for studio directions click on "General Yoga Class Info."
