~ Max Strom
Meditation can be defined as a simple concentration exercise, intending to bring stillness and transformation to the mind. Meditation practices are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice you learn the patterns and habits of your mind and also a means to cultivate new and more positive ways of being. With regular practice and patience, one can find themselves living in more peaceful and energized states. Such experiences can have a transformative effect and can lead to a new understanding of life.

In this hour and a half workshop we will dive a little deeper into the practice of meditation. We will answer some common questions on meditation, such as what are we doing? And why we are doing it? We will also look at meditation techniques, ways to approach the physical side of sitting in stillness, and discuss the many benefits of a meditation practice.
Benefits of meditation include:
As part of this workshop, we will also spend some time looking at the breath and helpful breathing techniques. These techniques can be done anywhere and at any time, helping to support meditation as an easy and effective daily habit.
My hope is that you can walk away with a better understanding of what meditation is, how meditation may help you, and where you can start to incorporate this practice into your life.
If you’re new or seasoned to meditation, this workshop will be accessible to you. Comfortable clothes are recommended but not a necessity. I suggest bringing a hooded sweater or toque as sitting in stillness for longer periods of time can lower the body temperature.
