Instructor: Brenda (Astara) Gustin, Ph.D., CMT, RYI
Time: 12:00-1:00
Location: Glassrock, Room 7106

There are many stages of life that represent levels of consciousness within our body and mind. The first stage begins when we are born. We wake up and become part of a family and culture which includes our neighborhood, state and country. A process of learning begins and forms our foundation and inherent values. This foundation firmly grounds us in beliefs that guide our everyday lives. Through meditation we can rediscover how the positive values of this foundation can be cultivated within this basic structure to design and foster health and creativity. Meditation is one of the most natural and yet most profoundly rewarding of all human activities. It connects you with your own inner powers of vitality, clarity, and love. When done deeply, it also connects you with Spirit and infinite joy.
