Meditation for Mystics, Healers and Seers

Meditation is a self-care practice that allows us to quiet our minds, calm our physical bodies, and go within to reach a heightened level of awareness. This three-part class looks at the art, the history, the science, and the magic of meditation from three unique perspectives.

“It is indeed a radical act of love just to sit down and be quiet for a time by yourself” – Jon Kabat-Zinn

Join Rev. Diana, Rev. Story, and Rev. Renee as they lead you on a journey towards discovering the benefits and joys of meditation for yourself.

Whether you are a beginner looking to develop a deeper connection to yourself and your own divinity, or whether you are an experienced meditator looking for tips to strengthen your existing practices, this class is for you.

A meditation practice can help you clear and strengthen your connection to Spirit and Universal Energy for intuitive and healing work and help you to develop an internal connection that will assist with day-to-day life. In these challenging times it is more important than ever that we allow ourselves some time to check in with our ourselves and take a moment away from the chaotic world.

This class is required for both the ISD Healing Certificate Program and the Intuitive Practitioner Program, but open to anyone at all levels of interest or spiritual development. 

Tuition:  $58 or $46 for ISD Members
