Research suggests that specific meditative techniques and breath work allow us to access the "compassion, forgiveness, and empathy" centers in the brain. Furthermore, experiencing these emotions can create positive changes in health and wellness, and allow us to feel more connected with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us. Instruction in compassion meditation is offered individually and in group settings, and can be combined with focused awareness meditation skills. Contact us for more information: 231.330.5836 or
