Meditation Fusion: Understanding the Mind

Meditation Fusion blends Eastern and Western practices to help achieve mental clarity, emotional balance, and peace of mind. We are multi-dimensional beings composed of vibrating energy fields; Body, Mind and Spirit. Just as a musical composition blends together different instruments into a collective vibratory harmony, we can learn to harmonize our bodies and minds. Key tools for attaining this attunement are meditation and self inquiry.

In these classes we explore how to recognize the levels of the Mind as:

  1. Rational
  2. Emotional
  3. Peaceful, Compassionate, Joyful
  4. Sub Conscious
  5. Silent

As a group we will:

  1. Practice watching our minds
  2. Share our observations
  3. Train in techniques to help us clarify our thoughts and feelings
