Sarah McLean – Meditation Teacher, Mentor, Practitioner

Sarah McLean is one of the key speaker and authors at the special 10th anniversary Celebrate Your Life on November 8-12, 2012 in Sedona, AZ.  See Sarah’s bio below.

This year’s Celebrate Your Life is expected to be completely different from any of the previous years.  Mishka Productions plans to integrate more experiential activities, walks in nature, connecting to the Boynton Canyon Vortex, Drumming Circles, connecting to Angels, Sprites and Fairies and more. One key practice over the 5 day event will be guided meditations.

On Friday, November 9, Sarah will lead everyone at the event in meditation. Everyone will experience “getting into the gap”, hopefully feeling that deep sense of contentment and inner peace.  All in attendance can take this practice into their daily lives.  In her book, Soul-Centered, Sarah explains, “By spending time in silence and your practice every day, your awareness expands and the noise and distractions (both in and out of meditation) lessen.  The spaciousness between choices and action can become more obvious.  In that space and underlying silence, you discover your inner guidance system–what some people call intuition–is very real.”.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for all in attendance to appreciate “Kinesthetic learning“, that is “hands on” or experiential learning.  Attendees will be “do-ers”!

More Local Chicago Meetups! Get Involved…

Here are some additional Chicago Area Meetups (Meetup.com) that have been great partners in helping us get the word out about Celebrate Your Life 2012, being held June 8-11 at the Westin Lombard.  A best practice that all great teachers have imparted is: be around like minded people! Here  are 2 tremendous meetups to get involved with.

1. Positive Focus – Living Life Fulfilled Meetup Group

Positive Focus, NFP  – Living Life Fulfilled  promoting positivity one thought and event at a time!

Positive Focus, a 501c3 non-profit organization headquartered in Chicago, spreads positivity globally through virtual and physical communities allowing people to see love over fear, abundance over lack, diversity over differences, and peace over conflict.

By:

  • Inspiring and empowering all who seek us out through mind-body-spirit, service-charity, & fun-social events
  • Seeing the world as 1 person 7 billion times rather than seeing the world as 7 billion people.
  • Being kind, compassionate, and having lots of fun and laughter along the journey.
  • Personally demonstrating a quote we hold close to our hearts:

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Gandhi

How: through Service-Charity, Mind-Body-Spirit, and Fun-Social both virtually and physically. For more information, visit: http://allthingspositivity.com/

Why Positive Focus? Do you want to surround yourself with people who lift you up and inspire you? People who choose to experience life to the fullest? People who live in a space of allowing and love? People that love to have fun and laugh?

That is why Positive Focus. Say a big hello to Carol Miller!

2. Chicago Weekly Sitting Meditation Group

The purpose of this group is, as the Buddha said, to seek out “wise & beneficial friends” who support us and our Meditation practice. Namely we are looking for a group of beginning & advanced students, and anyone interested who is willing to learn, to motivate each other by coming to (and becoming a regular part of) a weekly sitting meditation group. All teachers agree: The key to a successful meditation practice is a regular practice; and therefore this group is looking for people who realize the benefits of meditating together and who want to make a dedicated effort to sustain a once-weekly meetup for sitting meditation (with instruction, as needed). Brief discussion & mingling follows. This group is open to all schools of thought and meditation formats, and also for anyone willing to co-organize or suggest events. The development of Wisdom through regular meditation practice can lead to a decrease of “suffering” as well as an increase in Inner Peace and Compassion for oneself & others. Please join us, you are most welcome.
