So, transformation is about change. Change that we choose, or, in some cases, change that happens to us. When the change happens to us outside of our “choosing”, then it is our attitude about the change that can be transformative. But I think most transformations, require active participation on our part. Transformation requires a change, if you will. And we all know change requires intention and effort. A change that can be transformative, is the development of a meditation practice. This will be our primary topic for this week’s class.
I personally can’t think of a change in behavior that has been more daunting to me than the development of a personal meditation practice. My practice began 8 years ago and has been marked with “fits and starts”, experiments and issues. When we are developing an exercise program, the benefits of that program can readily be appreciated in our body. Our mind and it’s developing health from a meditation practice, can take longer to show the benefits. That makes it relatively easy to “fall off the wagon”. As we all know, that achieve a lasting benefit, we have to continue the change.
Have no fear! You are surrounded by fellow humans who share the same challenges you do! Join us on Monday nite October 20 from 6:30-8pm for a yoga practice that will include some tips on why developing a meditation practice can be part of your transformation process. We meet at The UU Church of Fresno on Alluvial!
