10/4 30-Minute Guided Meditation with Terry Mares
October 4, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm
You change your world, when you change your mind.
Meditation does not require you to stop your thoughts from flowing.
We have 60,000-80,000 thoughts a day, and our goal is not to stop our mind from doing what the mind does.
Just as our lungs breathe and our hearts beat- our mind thinks.
Instead, our only goal when we “sit”, is to cultivate the ability to disengage from the ongoing conversation.
A meditation practice allows us to disconnect from the stress in our lives by grounding ourselves in the present moment.
It offers us the opportunity to stop dwelling in ruminations about yesterday and worries about tomorrow.
Join us and learn techniques that will help you take a step back and walk through life more softly.
Each week we gather together as a community and explore different forms of meditation, breath and a mindful approach to life.
No previous meditation experience is necessary.
There are chairs and floor seats, and if it is a small class you can lie on the floor, if you prefer.
You will find us on the side of the mall @ V+Co.Consulting.
479 RT 79, Suite A5, between Lloyd & Tennent Rd in Morganville.
Please arrive a bit early, have a cup of tea, and settle in.
With respect for the circle, we will close the doors and begin promptly at 7:00
Walk-in’s are welcome – registration is respectfully requested.
No payment is required when you register.

Class will be led by Terry Mares
Terry Mares has followed a daily, dedicated meditation practice since March 2016. He came to mindfulness in an effort to lessen the effects of anger, frustration, and anxiety, which he thought were becoming out of control. Since he established his practice, he has learned to respond as opposed to react. That has resulted in not only making him calmer and patient, but also more focused. Terry is very passionate about sharing meditation and mindfulness as a way to reduce stress and create a more balanced life. Besides mindfulness, Terry loves a wide variety of music, gardening, and he is a proud Chicago sports fan.
