Meditation is a core practice here at Live Well Upstate. We can eat well, exercise, get plenty of sunshine and affection, and still be at the mercy of negative thinking, unhelpful emotions and fixed self-concepts.
Meditation in a group creates space for us to come as we are, and let everything be just as it is, without trying to change anything, avoid anything, or even figure out anything. When we do this, we become direct participants in our own deepest selves, before thought and emotion arise, where there is no fear or discontent.
Mindfulness also enhances our immune system, lowers our blood pressure and stress hormones, and gives us much needed rest from constant problem-solving.
Join us every Wednesday 6:30-8pm for meditation. All are welcome, we approach each session with beginner's mind.
Suggested donation for meditation: $5
