Meditation in Santa Maria

We invite all our Santa Maria students to continue their Thursday night meditation practice at our Lompoc branch.

On June 8, we said, “Goodbye” to the gymnasium at the Santa Maria YMCA with a guided meditation on wishing love, followed by a community gathering — with snacks, of course! Many, many THANK YOUS to Eleanor Byars and the entire Santa Maria YMCA management and staff for hosting our meditations for the past 3 years. It has been a wonderful experience for all of us. We will let the north Santa Barbara county community know if any other branch classes begin in Santa Maria.

5 Habits of Happy People

Happiness is something that each one of us longs for, but often our habitual ways of thinking take us in the opposite direction.

This 5-week meditation & mindfulness series will explore ways of thinking that uplift the mind. By carrying these practices into our busy daily life with mindfulness, we can maintain a light, joyful attitude whatever life throws our way.

Oct 25 – Confidence
Nov 1 – Contentment
Nov 8 – Acceptance
Nov 15 – Joy
Nov 22 – Gratitude

Each class begins with a guided breathing meditation and culminates with a second meditation based upon the evening’s topic.

Drop in to any or all classes in this course. Perfect for beginners or those with meditation experience. Open to everyone.
