Yet, waiting within you is a 'portable paradise,' a lush garden of personal peace and joy that you can visit at will, 24-7--simply by sitting in meditation! 

Join Arlene Samsel, long time meditator who will offer a simple, effective techniques, and will demonstrate the most practical methods of controlling and calming the mind for better meditations and many other health benefits.
