Tresca Weinstein, editor - Yoga Bulletin of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association (Jun 15, 2007) With wisdom, humor, crystal clarity, and down-to-earth, detailed directions, Bhavani Lorraine Nelson makes meditation not only possible, but also understandable, approachable, and inspiring. A teacher of meditation for 20 years, Bhavani weaves metaphors, stories, and her own experience into an enlightening explanation of the practice—perfect as an introduction for new meditators or as a reminder to experienced practitioners of what it's all about—and then guides us through the practice. The design allows users to customize their experience as far as length and how much guidance they'd like on any particular day.   Robb S. (Black Rock, CT) - (Dec 5, 2007) 5 Stars! Terrific meditation CD for beginners & experienced meditators!Sitting on my cushion listening to Bhavani's soothing voice talk me though a guided meditation session was great. Highly recommended for anyone just beginning to meditate, as well as more experienced meditators as well.   Margaret Burdett (Norwalk, CT USA) - (Nov 26, 2007) 5 Stars! Like having a meditation teacher in the room with you!Bhavani's instruction is simple, clear and beautifully rendered. Since I mostly meditate alone at home, I am grateful for the opportunity to practice with such a skilled teacher. I have tried other guided meditation cds and have found them to be more intrusive than they are supportive. With Meditation Made Possible, Bhavani's delivery and intention blend effortlessly to give me the sense that I am having a private meditation session with her each time I listen. This cd can strengthen your practice whether you're new to meditation or not. Highly recommended!   Gail Ostrow "fullgail" (Bridgeport, CT United States) - (Nov 19, 2007) 5 Stars! Meditation You Can Do!If you are a beginner, Bhavani will have you sitting in no time and wanting to do more. If you are experienced, Bhavani will re-inspire and invigorate your practice. Her voice is angelic and brings you to stillness in a most loving and helpful way. Both the guided and silent meditations are awesome. Listening to Bhavani on CD is almost as good as being in one of her meditation workshops. I hear her voice and I am immediately home again on my cushion. Enjoy!    ”

CANCELED Speaking From The Heart with Bhavani Lorraine-Nelson

The Yoga Space, 82 Washington St, Keene, New Hampshire 03431

Whether your public speaking is on stage, teaching, or offering a toast, you’re not alone if you experience performance anxiety. For many, the fear of public speaking ranks higher than the fear of death. This workshop will teach you how to use the tools of breath and yoga to transform your fear into the joy that comes from authentically communicating the message of your heart.

You will learn:

~exercises to bring you present in your body before you speak; ~the body’s relaxation-producing breath, which naturally dissipates anxiety; ~and mindfulness techniques that maintain an inner focus.

“My promise to you is not that you’ll no longer feel any fear, but that it will no longer hold you back from sharing your uniqueness with the world.” Bhavani Lorraine-Nelson

The Yoga Space, 82 Washington St , Keene, New Hampshire 03431

It was Krishna himself who said that the simple calling out of the divine names is the best spiritual practice in chaotic times. Chanting is a breathing practice—now prescribed by doctors for their heart patients; a meditation—see how quiet your monkey mind is as you immerse yourself in the chanting; a place to put your yearning for a direct experience of the divine; and above all else, it’s cheerful. It’s also true that we that we magnify the power of the chant when we practice as a group. So join us!
