Calming the Heart

“Calmness radiates from every fiber of my being.”

The secret of calmness lies not in the mind, but in the heart. Meditating can help transform reactive emotions into calm, intuitive feeling.

We will review:

*How relaxing the body can help to relax the heart

*Inviting in a sense of calmness and ease when practicing meditation techniques

*Viewing the breath as a friend, a comforter, a guide

*Heart-opening techniques such as guided imagery, affirmation, and simple chanting

Taught by Christina Riegel and Sita Tocco
