About Guided Meditation:
Leonard Perlmutter––educator, philosopher, scientist and founder of The American Meditation Institute (AMI)––will guide participants in a rewarding experience of AMI MEDITATION. This is the same mantra-based meditation practice that women and men have benefitted from for over 5,000 years. While seated in a chair (with the head, neck and trunk straight) you will be guided to close your eyes and direct your silent attention on any name of the Divine Reality that you are most familiar and comfortable with. This guided meditation, which will last about 20 minutes, will be preceded by complete instruction and followed by an informative question and answer period. AMI instructors will be present throughout the presentation to assist newcomers in finding a comfortable seated meditation posture. Through this experience, you will learn first-hand how to train your mind to be more focused, creative and content as you reduce distracting and stressful thoughts and enhance your body’s natural immune system.
