7pm "Meditation and Me" with Lynne Patterson

"Meditation and Me" explores The Eight Aspects of God through Meditation
July 10th and August 7th
 
Light, Sound, Peace, Calmness, Infinite Love, Joy, Wisdom, and Power
 
These are the Eight Aspects of God as defined in the book, “The Essence of Self-Realization” by Swami Kriyananda. Meditation and Me has created an experiential program that allows the student to align with and draw energy from each aspect during meditation. 
 
This four-part program begins on July 10th and continues August 7th, September 4th, and October 2nd. The individual sessions are free standing. See program descriptions below.
 
The programs run from 7-8 pm at Unity of Dallas, 6525 Forest Ln, Dallas, TX 75230.
 
A love offering for the church is requested.
 
These sessions are suitable for beginners and a brief overview of posture and meditation techniques are covered in each class. Most people sit in chairs to meditate and a few sit on the floor using their cushions or pillows. Feel free to bring your pillow, blankets, meditation benches – anything that to ensure your comfort while meditating.
