Meditation: Our Core Practice

The practice of meditation is the heart of all programs offered by the St. John’s Shambhala Meditation Group. Meditation is a way of slowing down and getting to know yourself, a way of making friends with your life and developing strength of mind, and a way of synchronizing body and mind in the present moment. It is a way of becoming fully present and appreciating your world.
