Meditation Class Offering on October 24th, 2020

Any peaceful step – even calming your own feelings and emotions – contributes to peace in the world.  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

You may be feeling as though there are intense emotions, fear, and conflict in yourself and in the world right now.  You may also be feeling that there is little you can do to feel calm or make things better.  Don’t lose hope.  Join me as we practice together to cultivate more peace in your daily life.  You can do your part in your world every day.  By practicing mindfulness daily, you strengthen your compassionate center.  You enable yourself to be this peace for others.  But first you must practice this peace for you.

Duration: 1 session.  If enough interest, a 4 week schedule of sessions will be offered.

Date/Time: Saturday, October 24th, 10-11 am

Location: Meeting via Zoom

Cost: $20

The group will be led by Susan Short, MA. Focused on treating the complete body, mind, and spirit, Susan Short began meditating fifteen years ago. Susan believes the success of counseling, and ultimately life fulfillment, can be enhanced significantly when breath awareness, meditation, and mindfulness are part of the treatment. Susan has a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University, and has completed a year-long deep study in Meditation Teacher Training. She continues to study at Touching Earth Mindfulness Center in Chicago. You can learn more about Susan and her work at her website: Touching Sky Meditation.
