What are the benefits of Inner Sanctuary?

It has been almost a year and a half since this meditation community started. Recently, the participants had a chance to reflect on their experiences. We discussed the following questions: what is your experience? Do you see any change?

In summary, SONOMAMA (as-it-is) practice of meditation fosters inner peace, emotional stability, and healthy relationships. Group support enhances individual growth, and self-acceptance leads to personal development. This holistic approach helps maintain calm and composure, even in stressful situations. Please join us!

A participant shared the following:

"The biggest surprise and change I experienced was when I could stop reprimanding myself for getting emotional about things that happened. (I struggled with my strong emotions.) However, when I smell a fart, it is only natural to react, "It stinks!" without resisting that feeling. Knowing that the smell would soon disappear, I could then calmly focus on the task at hand without any emotions.

I used to believe that I had to think positively about everything, that I couldn't change others, so I had to change myself, or that everything that happened was my fault because of the law of attraction. I put a lot of pressure on myself, thinking that no matter how tough it was, it was just growing pains and I had to tough it out.

I feel so much more at ease because this practice allowed me to let go of these beliefs. I was also putting this pressure on others without even knowing it. As a result, my relationship with my daughter, which I had given up on because of our conflicts, has improved. Previously, I would constantly complain about issues with her, but recently, I have almost nothing to complain about. 

I'm truly amazed by this change and grateful for my friends sitting with me through this journey." M
