GOM: Meditation for Clarity and Serenity

Thursdays, 7 - 8:30pm Eastern Time, April 13 – June 1, 2017
Onsite and via Webinar

GOM, or concentrated meditation, helps to develop clarity, serenity and a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

Based on Gelek Rimpoche’s transcript, GOM: A Course in Meditation, the sessions will alternate weekly between discussion/practice sessions done individually at-home or as a group onsite at participating Jewel Heart centers AND online Webinar presentation sessions with Jewel Heart Instructors Amy Hertz from Jewel Heart New York and Supa Corner Jewel Heart Ann Arbor.

Participating Jewel Heart locations will gather onsite for webinared and onsite sessions. Please check with your local Jewel Heart group.

Registrants will have access to a dedicated GOM webpage hosting earlier session recordings of the webinar presentations at their leisure.
