Soul On Fire

An Introduction to Dynamic Meditation
with Elise Holmes
Wednesday 8/16
Are you always multi-tasking? Does your mind jump from topic to topic constantly? Is your to-do list never-ending? If so you will probably find the traditional form of meditation pretty difficult. If you sit with your legs crossed and your eyes closed, you’re either going to fall asleep or make a shopping list, draft a blog, and practice a conversation with your coworker, friend, or your child all in under ten minutes, right?
If that sounds familiar, come try active meditation. Like all things, learning to focus your mind takes practice (practice, practice). Focusing on nothing is much more difficult than focusing on one thing. We have to start with getting our minds to focus on one thing for a short amount of time before we try to get it to focus on one thing for a longer period of time.Join Elise for an intro to this dynamic practice that gives you something specific on which to focus, something you can experience with your sense in real time. Find some clarity to questions in your life, find more peace, get some energy out, and give yourself some care.• 6-8 pm
