Feel those roots of energy as they search deeper and deeper, establishing you firmly and securely upon the surface of the planet.

Guided Meditation for Peace

Meditation is a wonderful experience…a golden opportunity to draw deeper into your own being. The purpose of meditation is to turn your awareness inside. So often, we are focused on external things—-now is the opportunity to rest your mind from external distractions and experience the sense of peace that is available to you now, and in every moment. During meditation, the body becomes relaxed and still.

As your body relaxes, the mind too, relaxes.
