Meditation – Best for Adults
Free to Pre-Registered Competitors – PRIMORDIAL SOUND MEDITATION 2:10 PM to 3:00 PM
Primordial Sound Meditation is a technique based in ancient practices, with its origins in the ancient practices of India. The actual PSM “method,” was developed by Dr. Deepak Chopra and his colleagues at the Chopra Center, in the early 1990’s. The method employs a “bija” or seed mantra – or vehicle of the mind – which is used by the practitioner to help to attain a calm and peaceful transition to their own inner space.
This workshop will give you the tools and the roadmap, to begin this amazing journey.
The course will be presented by Grandmaster Eddie Minyard, 8th Dan (NH). He is a Primordial Sound Meditation Instructor, certified by the prestigious Chopra Center.
