Creative Therapeutics has partnered with NIU to present a free series of five consecutive workshops, beginning Friday, June 9, 5:30-6:30.
Conscious Living is a way of experiencing the world so that we can avoid being overcome by the emotional ups and downs in life. We learn to continually connect with a calm, peaceful place within us, and begin to experience more joy and clarity in our daily lives. Heartfulness Meditation is the foundation for cultivating this conscious way of living.
This series of workshops explores several topics that can assist us in making deliberate choices based on our own values and truth. Each workshop will also offer a heartfulness meditation session. Check out the flyer, below, for dates and descriptions. While the workshops are free, they depend upon your attendance to proceed. Please call 815-758-5508 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you plan to attend!
What to expect: There will be around 20-25 minutes of topic material (presentation plus discussion), following by a relaxation technique and Heartfulness Meditation. After the meditation, there will be information on how to continue meditating on their own, and (time-permitting) Q & A.
