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.

How does the state of our mind affect our health and well-being? Perhaps we believe that a positive attitude is generally beneficial. Perhaps we recognize that some lifestyle choices are more harmful than others. But do we understand how our own mind actually creates our experience of contentment and peace, or of pain and dissatisfaction? We can’t control external situations, but we can learn to control how we respond to them.
