“Introduction to Meditation” 

Curious about what it takes to start a meditation practice? Have you tried to meditate but just end up frustrated? Does you mind go a mile a minute? Do you feel like life is passing you by faster everyday? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then come join Shawn McGovern in this “Intro to Meditation” workshop. In this daily fast paced life we rarely recognize how important it is to slow down. In this workshop you will learn important tools to help calm your mind, open your heart and incorporate meditation into your daily life. We will discuss why meditation might seem impossible but is actually pretty simple. Shawn will talk about what meditation is and what it’s not. He will introduce you to the benefits of meditation and how it can help, not only physical, but mental ailments within your life. You will learn the importance of breathing (pranayama) and how it relates to your mind and your practice. During the workshop Shawn will teach how the breath can be used to keep your thoughts from being distracting and how the use of mantra techniques can overpower any busy mind. During the last half of the workshop you will be guided through a simple but highly effective meditation that will be comfortable for everyone. Afterwards, Shawn will take questions and discuss the easiest and most effective ways to build a good habit of daily practice. In the end, this workshop will leave you with the tools and confidence to begin your new journey as daily meditator. *Please bring a Yoga Mat (if you have one) and a firm pillow, thick towel, blanket, or bolster.
