Week 3 - Deepening Your Meditation Through Calm Feeling.(April 16, 2018)

Week 4 - Deepening Your Meditation Through Superconsciousness.(April 23, 2018)
Meditation has been described as an “upward relaxation into Superconsciousness!” We can think of Superconsciousness as the realm of intuition from which come answers, guidance, inspiration and the elemental soul qualities of joy, love, vitality, peace, calmness and the inner experiences of astral light and sound. We can approach this state of consciousness metaphysically, energetically, or devotionally according to our own temperament. True meditation begins when the practice of meditation techniques end! In this class we will focus on how to enter into inner stillness which allows the invisible, weightless waterfall of intuition and Superconsciousness to flow into our life.
