Meditation and Concentration are inextricably linked. Meditation has been shown to improve concentration, and as any meditator knows, concentration improves meditation. New research shows that in as little as 8 weeks of practice, meditation can shrink the amygdala (responsible for fear and stress) and measurably increase the thickness of the pre-frontal cortex, associated with awareness, decision making and improved concentration. Join us as we explore the interplay between concentration and meditation. Learn and practice a variety of techniques including how to sharpen your concentration while practicing any form of meditation, and meditations specifically designed to enhance concentration.

Saturday May 20th and 27th
2:00-4:00pm
Cost: $79
