That includes our cells, tissues, genes,our brain and the neural networks that link to those networks that link to those regions, as well as our thoughts, emotions and social networks.
The focus of this workshop is to gain an understanding of the term meditation and its stages, method and benefits. It will also cover a range of meditation styles and techniques.
