The scientific community has recently been exploring the use of meditation as a healing modality. Join Eileen Carlotto as she discusses the extraordinary effect of meditation to reduce stress-related responses, improve concentration, enhance clarity of thought and mental equilibrium. She will also present a simple, yet powerful meditation technique that can enrich one’s life personally, professionally and spiritually.

Eileen Carlotto is a middle-school art teacher, author, and illustrator. With 35 years meditation experience to draw on, Eileen offers workshops on various aspects of meditation and spirituality. Eileen has studied under a world renowned meditation teacher and been to India many times to deepen her practice and share this technique with others.

She has written, Through the Stars, an illustrated book for young children and is illustrating stories that will eventually become part of a series of mystic stories for children.

Eileen demonstrates how, in the middle of a jam-packed, daily schedule, you can integrate your meditation practice into your own busy life.
