with Colleen Rose
11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 5
Thanks to growing scientific evidence, we now know that meditation offers measurable health benefits and makes life better in some very meaningful ways - from disease prevention and pain management to better sleep, emotional well-being, and stress relief.
But perhaps its most important (and sometimes overlooked) benefit is the rare and precious opportunity meditation affords us - the midst of our busy, noisy, and often chaotic lives - to practice silence and self-reflection as a means to knowing ourselves better. Meditation is the surest and simplest pathway we can use to discover our fundamental nature, purpose, and essence...and gain a deeper grasp of who we are and why we're here.
Join Colleen Rose, Yoga 360 Founder and Chopra Center Certified Teacher, and learn to discover Primordial Sound Meditation - a natural, effortless style of meditation that you can easily integrate into your busy life and actually enjoy. You will receive a personal Primordial Sound Meditation mantra, which is the vibration the universe was creating at the time and place of your birth. It is calculated following Vedic mathematic formulas. When you silently repeat your mantra in meditation, it creates a vibration that helps you slip into the space between your thoughts, into the complete silence that is sometimes referred to as "the gap." Your mind is no longer caught up in its noisy internal chatter and is instead exposed to its own deepest nature: pure awareness.
Four sessions include:
1 | Principles of Meditation

Let go of limiting thoughts about what is (and is not) possible for your life - and open to an expanded awareness of your true nature, which is pure and unlimited potential.
