ADVANCED MEDITATION FOUR (4) SESSION PACKAGE – Thursdays, July 7th, 14th, 21st, & 28th. Time: 6:00pm to 8:00pm Price: $30 per session, or $100 if all 4 sessions are pre-paid ($20 savings). Are you under stress and overworked? Do you struggle with your emotions? Have you been wondering how to exit the “rat race”? You can learn how to stop the energy leak by practicing total relaxation, and come back to yourself! Stress is self-generated, and is the byproduct of fear. Deep down, we all know this. The root cause is that we all live in the past or future in our thoughts—without consciously realizing that both are out of reach and out of our control. Negative thoughts have a destructive effect on our mind, and ultimately they manifest in the form of stress. You may know intellectually that stress can be dealt with, but do you really know of a proven technique that can help YOU? Learn Vipassana. Gautama became Buddha (the enlightened one) with the help of Vipassana. If he could, why can't you? Sitting on the floor is not a requirement. You may sit on a chair, if need be. Comfortable clothes will be helpful. Sessions will consist of Breathing, guided meditation, and silent meditation. Participants will learn about stress and its root cause, body, mind, and energy connection, the law of karma, and the effects of stress on a cellular level. Presenter: Bharat Kalra. Crystal River Gifts 310 N LaFox Street, South Elgin, IL 60177. 224-535-8708. www.CrystalRiverGifts.com
