MEDITATIONS FOR GETTING THE BEST OUT OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON

Discover the power of meditation and mindfulness to enable us to develop and maintain good relationships with everyone in our life – whether it’s our partner, family, friends or others – and in this way, learn how to truly enjoy our relationships and life.

We all have within us the potential for everything we need to truly flourish and fully enjoy our relationships and life. The qualities that make our relationships and life rich and meaningful such as inner peace, love, compassion and patience, are more natural to our mind than we may think.

We will learn how to practically connect to, cultivate and strengthen these inner qualities through meditation and improving our mindfulness. Through this, we will learn how to develop and maintain a naturally peaceful, positive mind, no matter what is happening in our relationships and life. In this way, we will discover how to work through the inevitable challenges we meet in our relationships and life.
