Learn to Meditate

with Rebecca McAllister
April 12 / 7:00 PM - April 14 / 12:00 PM

In this introductory class you will receive the technique, guidance and experience necessary to start a mindfulness-awareness or “peaceful abiding” meditation practice. Your teacher will give you detailed instruction and guided meditation so that you have the tools for a daily practice.
