  Clean up the mental clutter and stop the chatter in your mind by choosing a different way of thinking! Over the years, our minds become cluttered with information that is useless, irrelevant, and harmful. Our thoughts work against us, and we find that our inner clarity and in-born wisdom become unreachable. Sadly, we also may lose touch with our inner self which is kind, loving, compassionate, and peaceful…until now! One way to find our true spirit again is ‘to stand porter at the door of thought.’ By observing what and how we think and making a conscious choice to think differently we can control and retrain our thoughts to “quiet our mind.” Topics include:   Understand how and what you think See, let go, and change the way you think Respond, do not react Use breathing, meditation, and qigong to quiet your mind, focus, and be still Practice thoughts of appreciation, compassion, and forgiveness for yourself and others Keep your new peaceful thought system! The choice is yours to make. Join us and achieve the mind-body-spirit connection to quiet your mind. Note: Bring your lunch and a beach towel. Wear comfortable clothes. $15 materials fee (for 26-page workshop manual, pen; hearts; stickers; heart surprises) payable in class.
