INTRO TO AMI MEDITATION: The Basics for Getting Started

February 21 & February 28

Presented by AMI Faculty (Mary Holloway, Bob Iwaniec DC, Doreen Howe, Beth Netter MD, André Tremblay & Sandy Vo)

Have you ever thought about trying meditation, but didn’t know how to get started?  In AMI’s two-session course, you’ll receive a complete introduction on how to start—and stick with—a daily practice of AMI MEDITATION. It’s easy to learn the basics: how to deal with distractions, reduce stress, enhance your body’s immune system and become more focused, creative and content.

What is Meditation? In meditation you are fully alert, but the mind is relaxed and allowed to let go of its tendencies to think, analyze, remember, solve problems and focus on events of the past or expectations for the future. Meditation helps the mind to slow down its rapid series of thoughts and feelings that often lead to stress and dis-ease, and to replace that mental activity with a quiet, effortless, one-pointed focus of attention and awareness. Thus, meditation is not thinking about problems or analyzing a situation.  Meditation is not having an internal conversation or argument with yourself. It is an inner attention that is concentrated, yet relaxed. It does not conflict with any religious tradition.
