The what, why and how of meditation.

We hear a lot these days about mental and emotional health, and their link with physical health. We forget to include the importance of addressing spiritual health. Join me as I discuss meditation and spiritual health with my friend and pastor, Hampton Deck. You'll hear each of our methods of meditation, and understand why creating this internal "space" for yourself is so important.



What is peace and how can we find it for ourselves?
