For thousands of years people have used meditation to move beyond the mind’s stress-inducing thoughts and emotional upsets into the peace and clarity of present moment awareness.
The variety of meditation techniques, traditions, and technologies is nearly infinite, but the essence of meditation is singular: the cultivation of mindful awareness and expanded consciousness.
To spread the awareness of meditation in the society, Wagons Skill Foundation organised a Meditation Awareness Programme in Pune.
Location & Date: Shivajinagar, Pune on October 10th, 2015.
