POSTPONED Heart Based Meditation with Martina Dittmar Tuesdays in April 10-11am.
Join Martina for a LIVE class to learn Heart Based Meditation. The class has 4 in-person meetings with some online content in between. Heart Based Meditation is very effortless and only requires 20 minutes 2 times a day to see tremendous benefits including: healing to the physical body, improved energy, better concentration, more happiness, and peace of mind. It works by connecting us to Pure Consciousness, which is extremely healing. Please call Martina at 207-610-3223 to sign up. Space is limited and Covid guidelines will be followed.
