Drop-in Session: Meditation as an Act of Kindness and Nourishment

Diane Hetrick

About this Event

So often when people sit down to meditate, our judgments arise: What’s wrong with me? Why can’t I stop my thoughts? Why can’t I do this ‘right’? How we work with this can affect whether or not your meditation is beneficial and nourishing for you.

This session will include tips and perspectives and then provide an opportunity to practice with them so you can learn how to greet your mediation experience with kindness, acceptance, warmth, and compassion.
