Call for a listing of current groups, both time-limited and ongoing.

DYNAMIC MEDITATION (DM) GROUPS: Dynamic Meditation is a skill and a therapeutic tool designed by Claudia and it is used to manage emotional reactions that occur in daily living. In the DM groups, you will meet others who are learning this meditation skill and you will learn to use it by hearing their stories and sharing yours in an atmosphere of confidentiality. Claudia will work with people individually as well as a group so that you can see the method in action while applying it to your own personal concerns. Meditation is called a “practice” because it is a learned skill that requires repetition, focus, and structure. These groups provide a structured format within which you can practice Dynamic Meditation on a weekly basis with the help and guidance of the group leader.
