Silence – Uncover Hidden Treasures @ Meditation Museum II |  |  |

The very nature of life, time and existence, are true because of the gaps, the space, the silence between the notes of their rhythms.
All of life lives in the silent stillness, the space between matters vibrations; it is in silence that we all live, amid the noise of life.
Sunday, November 24th, 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. Held at the Meditation Museum II, 1984 Chain Bridge Road, Suite 201, McLean, VA 22102. Free Event – Contributions Appreciated. RSVP at https://bit.ly/2qSuLOG.

Evening Raja Yoga Foundation Course (VA) @ Meditation Museum |  |  |

Raja Yoga is an ancient system of meditation and spiritual understanding. It enables us to return to a state of inner peace, personal power and self-worth through re-kindling the soul’s original qualities and virtues. At its deepest level, Raja Yoga Meditation is taught as a method of self-awareness, leading ultimately to self-realization.

The Foundation Course in Meditation Includes:
• The method and experience of meditation;
• Understanding the nature of the self and God;
• The philosophy of karma and the cycle of time; and
• Making meditation and spirituality a practical part of your daily life.

Benefits of Raja Yoga Meditation:
Peace of mind; relaxation of body, mind and spirit; new attitudes and responses to life; positive relationships; a deep sense of self-worth, greater concentration and clarity; a clearer sense of purpose, inner stability and contentment.

Course is held for 6 days in McLean, Virginia on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for two weeks. Since each class is connected to the next, plan to attend all, in sequence. Beginning Tuesday, December 3rd, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Free Event – Contributions Appreciated. Held at the Meditation Museum II, 1984 Chain Bridge Road, McLean, VA.

Building Bridges Breaking Bread Benefit Dinner @ Convene
Feb 29 all-day
Building Bridges Breaking Bread Benefit Dinner @ Convene

Held at the close of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Building Bridges Breaking Bread is a fun night out that celebrates the power of community and raises funds to support the incredible clients Rock Recovery serves.

Gather around the table with us and enjoy a special opening reception, a three-course plated dinner, unlimited beer and wine, and a live and silent auction.

Rock Recovery is a local nonprofit that helps people overcome eating disorders and body image issues. Eating disorder treatment is costly and often inaccessible for families, and only 1 in 10 people get the help they need. Proceeds from the event will go toward program scholarships to help more clients access the care they need to heal from disordered eating, so they can break bread with those they love.

We hope you will join us for this wonderful event. For more information on registration and event details, visit www.rockrecoveryed.org/buildingbridges.
