Raja Yoga Healing Meditation: Family Edition

Raja Yoga Meditation helps you reach a deeper understanding of yourself, your intrinsic positive qualities and your innate value. There is beauty in all of us and through meditation the inner beauty not only is revealed to the self, but also to the people around us. Join practitioners from the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University on the last Saturday of every month from 4:00-5:45PM, to explore these universal concepts and encourage your inner spiritual development toward a fresh perspective on values such as justice, freedom, respect and love. Sessions will be interactive and experiential, where your tools for the inward journey will be explored and shared.

February's session will feature volunteers from Kids Helping Through the Arts. They will be making origami lotus flowers. This session welcomes attendees of all ages and levels. Bring the family down for crafts and an interactive meditation session.
