I still cannot believe it is over! It is surreal to think that my first workshop is over and I’m still on cloud nine in love and joy. Here are some of the highlights of the experience.
On Saturday, May 18th, I led an Open Heart Meditation to Self Compassion at YogaFunk Studio in Glendora, CA. In this 60-minute guided meditation, we focused on our ability to offer unconditional love and self acceptance.
Upon entering the studio, students were invited into the lobby with the aroma of Plant Therapy’s Loving Compassion essential oil diffusing through the air. Comforting and calming, this synergy helped to open and uplift the heart center as they registered and made their way into the studio space.
As the students embarked on their meditative journey, they each applied drops of Vedic Botanicals Meditative Bliss on their 4th (Heart) Chakra to prepare their mind and bodies to relax and ease into a meditative state. At each stage of meditation, students were guided into a deeper state of relaxation through conscious breathing and visualization to cultivate mindfulness. With a conscious mind and relaxed state, students gently brought their bodies back to a seated pose to meditate on the heart
The healing meditation was followed by giveaways, gift bags and refreshments from local businesses and startups including our refreshment sponsor: Clearly Kombucha. Featuring their most popular flavors: Strawberry Hibiscus, Raspberry Lemonade, Asian Pear, and Black Currant!
