The practice of meditation is to learn to be fully present in each moment of our lives. So often we go through the day
without being present, responding simply with habitual patterns of impulsivity or reactivity and preconceptions of how things should be.

Meditation is an opportunity to break through these patterns and preconceptions to gain a larger perspective in which openness and understanding can arise. From this perspective we can see things as they are and live in a more relaxed way with full attention on each moment.

All courses and workshops are held in The Meditation Center in Wilmington (across the hall from the Empowered Yoga studio) unless otherwise noted.
