The Gift of Inner Peace
Are you seeking inner peace?
Where do you hope to find it?

Instinctively we know Life holds great promise:
that inner joy and serenity can be ours.

Perhaps you have asked yourself: 
How can I find peace of mind?

Great scriptures throughout the ages have lovingly proclaimed:
The secret to inner peace is to go within. 

The peace of your soul awaits you at the center of your own being.
You will never find real peace anywhere else.

Have you ever asked yourself:
How can I remain calm and poised
even during challenging circumstances?

The answer lies in living less at your periphery
and more from your center.

Meditation is the supreme art of learning
to live from one’s center.

Meditation is a state of profound relaxation,
where the mind is still and extremely alert.

The benefits of meditation are many:
Concentration… Joy… Creativity… Love
In deep meditation the body and mind are still
and the heart is open to others and to God.

Meditation means listening with your whole being.

Meditation trains you to bring all your resources
of body, mind, and heart to whatever you do. 

Meditation is a scientific process of withdrawing your awareness
from the body, mind, and emotions in order to
experience higher aspects of your being. 

With a little instruction, anyone can meditate.
The benefits are so enormous, you might think:
This is too good to be true!
But it is true.

Once you begin to meditate even just ten minutes a day,
you will wonder how you ever got along without it.

Give yourself and others the greatest gift of all:
Inner Peace
Meditate Daily
Share your joy and uplifted consciousness with everyone and everything. 


May the peace of your soul
always guide and inspire you.
