Ron Shonk’s popular Meditation For Everyone classes will be offered locally again, beginning Sunday July 6, from 10 a.m. to noon, and continuing through eight Tuesday evenings, July 10 through August 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.  All sessions begin promptly, at Saint John’s Parish Hall, Fifth Street at Sixth Avenue in Keremeos.  In addition, for the first time, Ron will lead three additional “Sunday Morning Meditation” hours on the first and third Sundays of July and August (July 20, August 3 and 17), from 9 to 10  a.m.. There is no cost for the Sunday sessions. Donations are accepted but not required for the Tuesday evening sessions.

Classes are open to anyone age 14 and older, Ron describes his unique method of teaching as “experience- based, and not dogma-based”.  Persons of any faith tradition or none are welcome, and will find his approach adaptable – or, he says, “perhaps challenging, but not judgmental” – to one’s own belief orientation. Newcomers to meditation as well as former and present meditators from any tradition are welcome.  It is, as its title says, Meditation for everyone.

The first (July 6) session, “Learn to Meditate in 150 Minutes”, is foundational.  Participants will leave with a clear experiential understanding of how to meditate.  The eight weekly Tuesday evening sessions will help to establish an ongoing meditative practice, and will enrich and deepen the basic instruction.  Past participants uniformly report these sessions as highly valuable and enjoyable.

The measurable benefits of meditation to one’s physical and emotional health have been clearly validated by medical research.  “Meditation is good medicine.”  The spiritual benefits of a daily meditation practice are profound beyond measure.  Its practice is also enjoyable.

This may be Ron’s final offering of the course here in Keremeos, at least for a while, so sign up now and don’t miss out on this free life-enhancing gift.

Register by calling 250-499-4822, providing your name and contact information. Encourage a friend or family members to join you.  Please keep this announcement as a schedule reference.
