3 week Meditation series... with instructor Sandra Herman!

Mindful Meditation

The physical body is always in the present, but our mind tends to travel into the future and into the past.   Mindfulness is the experience of choosing to bring our attention to the present moment, without judging what is happening, and without trying to change anything.  In this guided meditation at the Dragon Spirit Arts Studio, you will be invited to rest your body and mind, and to focus on the movement of your breath, with kindness and compassion for yourself and for all beings.  We will also have a short discussion on the practice of everyday mindfulness, where we bring the same kind of awareness and concentration to our daily activities.  Everyone is welcome.

As a health educator, Sandi has developed expertise in holistic approaches to stress reduction. She worked for many years as a women’s health care advocate and educator, as well as an AIDS activist.  Since 2007, she has conducted workshops on stress reduction, mindfulness, and self-care for University of Pennsylvania students and staff. Incorporating such mind/body practices as meditation, guided imagery, self-applied massage, and mindful movements. These workshops encourage participants to experience consciously the present moment with kindness and compassion for themselves and others.  Sandi began practicing meditation in 1987.  Over the years, she has studied meditation and mindfulness with a number of wonderful teachers, including many amazing cats.  Sandi is also a Reiki practitioner, and enjoys volunteering her time offering Reiki to animals and people in need.

Explore, Imagine, Create! Yoga is a fun and creative way for children to explore the capabilities of the mind, body and spirit.   It provides a creative and constructive release for their abounding energy and teaches them how to focus, relax and calm their minds.  Most of all, children are challenged and have a great deal of fun practicing yoga! Yoga engages children by addressing all styles of learning while stimulating their conscious minds to think differently and outside the box. Children’s imaginations are cultivated and challenged through yoga inspired games, games that encourage focus, memory and physical fitness as well as body awareness. All of these things are imperative to a child’s development and to successfully navigate the world in which they live (appropriate for ages 7-10).  

Advanced Registration is required for the 4 week series and the cost is $45 (Late Registration is $55).  REGISTER TODAY!
