What is Healing Meditation
Healing Meditation is about learning to explore the many aspects of mindfulness meditation that create openings for healing. In these classes I will incorporate the work of Jon Kabat – Zinn on stress reduction from the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Many handouts and information are given. We also have fun.
