All are aimed toward setting your intentions for the year ahead. \nAs with any meditation practice\, candle gazing allows us to experience a sense of calm and peace amidst our very hectic daily lives. It is said that the\, “eyes are the windows to the soul\,” and there is no doubt that the eyes are one of our most powerful senses. In Sanskrit\, the word Trāṭaka means “to gaze steadily at a fixed point.” Traṭaka is known to enhance the power of memory and bring to the mind a heightened state of awareness\, attention and focus. In this peaceful and relaxing\, yet powerful meditation practice\, we will be comfortably seated as we gaze upon a candle’s flame. \nMove\, breathe\, restore—the perfect way to start the new year! \nCost:  $20. Cash only. Pre-Registration is requested\, however drop-ins may be accommodated.  Contact our office\, by email or by phone (250 383-1012) to confirm your place at this event. \nWhat to bring: yoga mats\, water bottle and good intentions! \nWhat to wear: comfortable clothing that supports your movements. \nPlease enter by the garden gate on Mason Street. 2-hour street parking.
