About this event

Each Tuesday evening from Sept to Dec 2021, Stacey will guide you through a meditative intention to wind down and relax.

During the 30-minutes together from 9pm, we will meditate on our breath, improvised soundscapes (Stacey will play bowls or gongs), and silence. Through breathing practice, sound, and silent meditation, you can tap into the Parasympathetic Nervous System in order to rest, repair, and rejuvenate your system.

TIME NOTE: Times are Regina, AB, Canada time. Check your timezone if you are zooming in from other areas.
