Meditation Workshop Registration Open

We are now accepting registrations for Meditation Workshops on Saturday June 13th.  We are offering a morning Workshop that covers Mind Stabilization and Stress Reduction practices 10-11:30 AM, and an afternoon workshop that features Opening Consciousness and Self Awareness practices from 1:00-2:30 PM.  Visit our Contact and Registration page or call 678-358-8775 for more information.

The warm response and interest that Sunrise Meditation and Counseling has received has been very gratifying. This blog is being posted to answer a few questions that have come up about the practice and the location.

Why Sautee Georgia?  Why not closer to Atlanta?

Sautee is a beautiful and peaceful environment conducive to healing and restoration.

There is value in engaging in Workshops and therapy some distance from one’s home. Depending on where in the Atlanta Metro area a person is coming from, the drive can take as little as 1 hour and 15 minutes on a weekend. I’ve personally spent more time in traffic during rush hour in Atlanta trying to travel just a few miles. And, our “Visiting Sautee” page gives directions to avoid the tourist backup that can accumulate approaching Helen.

I personally engage in Spiritual Direction on a monthly basis, and my Spiritual Director is located on the Southeast side of Atlanta. I find that the drive there provides an opportunity to consider my motivation and needs, and the drive back is an opportunity to reflect on the session experience and how it applies to my life.

Why individual Workshops? Why not full weekend retreats?

Many people want to “get away” but can’t engage in an entire weekend or even an overnight activity. We offer a weekend “day trip” option. Our “Visiting Sautee” web page offers pointers to local lodging and scenic attractions if a person or couple wants to create their own “retreat weekend” that includes Workshops or Therapy. We also offer a discount on single day back to back workshops so a person can enjoy multiple workshops in a day if they choose.

Is there any way to get Christian Tantric Meditation Workshops closer to Atlanta?

Meditation or Recovery Workshops can be provided for groups of people at a location of their choosing evenings during the week. Workshops have been provided for groups in private homes, and have been discussed with Church groups. Call us at 678-358-8775 for more information if you are part of a group who has an interest.
