August’s Theme: What’s Your Theme?

As you think so shall you become” is not a cliché—it’s the fundamental truth. Your dominant thoughts are responsible for all that happens to you.

~David Bardsley

Our theme for August is “What’s Your Theme?”

That is, “What do you keep telling yourself?” or “What do you keep reinforcing?”

In meditation terms, it is your mantra. A mantra is a phrase or statement that is repeated frequently to be reinforced or concentrated so it becomes your reality.

What do you find you repeat the most in your mind?

“I am stressed…anxious…too busy…I’ll never…I can’t…”

Time to change those thoughts!

You can change those thoughts to —“I am peaceful & relaxed!”

We are here to help you change those thoughts. Here at Meditate Madison, that is our specialization. Be it through meditation, yoga, relaxation techniques, energy healing or coaching, we will help you transform your mind, body and spirit.

Attend one of the varied classes and/or programs this month as we explore this focus of creating loving and peaceful thoughts for ourselves.

Below you will find our classes, workshops and other events for this month as well as the personal sessions available to you with Deb Phelps and Dineen Carta. Personal sessions are the way you can have meditation, yoga, healing, or coaching on your own schedule. We still have open appointments, so be sure to schedule your initial appointment today by calling 608-216-2805, Extension 10 for Deb and Extension 11 for Dineen.

Be sure to check the online calendar in case of schedule changes. Please note that there is a 2-hour registration requirement for classes. Workshops and other events may vary. Attend the sessions of interest to you. If you miss one, it will most likely be repeated in the future. The sessions are open to anyone who is interested.
