Meditation workshop set for Tuesday in Edwards
Ryan Summerlin September 28, 2012
Meditation has certainly been the ‘buzz’ word in the Vail Valley following the recent “Living At Your Peak” health and wellness summit. The numerous presenters at Living At Your Peak showed strong scientific evidence of the benefits of meditation practice: From the physical attributes of stress alleviation, reduced blood pressure, increased cognitive abilities and improved athletic performance, to just living happier day-to-day lives. People who were intrigued by what they learned about meditation have an opportunity to learn deeper meditation skills and concepts from meditation instructor Joey Klein on Tuesday at Dogma Athletica in Edwards. This interactive workshop will teach you a practical form of meditation, the health benefits of which are scientifically well documented. The workshop will begin with a 45-minute light stretching and body awareness practice with Julia Clarke, followed by Klein, who will guide participants through the meditation technique. It will conclude with a group meditation, one you can practice on your own to create transformation in your life.
Klein is a highly sought after national instructor on meditation techniques and mindfullness. His program is for the experienced meditator as well as people new to the practice. This technique will help you see your mind and emotions as powerful tools, your allies on the road to health and well being. You will quickly learn to recognize when you are stuck in unhealthy thoughts, beliefs and concepts and shift your focus to make constructive, new choices. This practice will help lay the foundation from which you can create a magnificent life of joy, peace and fulfillment.
Klein has spent the last decade studying ancient mindfulness traditions and merging them with present day psychology and neuroscience to form his own unique and powerful curriculum for inner personal growth.
In 2003, Klein established the Institute for Transformational Studies in Crestone. Since that time, the Institute has grown to serve an international clientele with routine programs in metropolitan areas across the United States. Klein’s diverse speaking engagements range from addressing the United Nation’s Peace Conference to serving as a keynote speaker at a large annual Internet conference in Las Vegas. Klein’s highly interactive speaking style allows him to be at home in any venue.
