    Sangha Group

    This Sunday's meditation involves getting in touch with your energy centers and energy channels. Chakras and meridians are centers and conduits within the body that circulate vital Chi or (Qi/Ki) energy. Join us for a guided meditation that will put us in touch with each energy center and conduit to recharge, heal, and revitalize these centers. These centers and conduits can be viewed as physical or metaphysical in nature.  A handout will be provided.   Facilitated  by Matt Willett.

    Open to wisdom from many sources, the Sangha Group meets in support of each other's mindfulness and meditation practices.  We maintain ties to the Southern Maryland Meditation Community - all are welcome.
