EAGLE — Many of us wait for the conditions to arise to cause joy in our lives. But in fact, joy is a quality that we can develop directly and bring out under a variety of circumstances. How we focus our attention always affects the state of our mind.

Join Maria DeSimone and Karen Anderson for a workshop to cultivate joy on and off your meditation cushion. The workshop will be on Saturday, Dec. 12, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Yoga off Broadway in Eagle.

From 11 to 11:45 a.m., join DeSimone, developer of the Prapatti Prop, for an exploration of finding joy on your meditation cushion. She will present tips and tricks to find comfort in the seated meditation pose through optimal alignment, which increases energy flow during your practice. Prapatti Props will be available to try out. This session is free of charge.

Then from 11:45 to 1 p.m., join Anderson for an exploration of being joy in your life. There will be discussion on the causes and the obstacles to joy and then a meditation practice to cultivate joy directly. Anderson has been teaching meditation in Vail for five years and is certified and empowered to teach by Noah Levine in the lineage of Jack Kornfield. This portion of the workshop is $20.

Both segments are for all levels, with no experience necessary. Come to one or both portions of the workshop. To register, contact Yoga off Broadway at 970-328-9642 or yogaoffbroadway@ gmail.com. If you have questions about the workshop, contact Anderson directly at karene@vail.net.
