Release some stress, relax, and rejuvenate the system on the Full Moons - Jan 17 (Mon), Feb 15 (Tues), Mar 17 (Thurs), and April 15 (Fri) from 9:00 to 9:30PM (Regina, Canada time).

During this 30-minute session, we will meditate on our breath, improvised soundscapes (Stacey will play bowls or gongs), and silence.
