Meditation Seminar Announcement

Update: This seminar is now full, but if you feel strongly that you want to attend, email Sheldon.

Leslie’s meditation teacher is coming to Rexburg for a seminar. Come join us. Saturday, November 15 2014 from 9am-4:30pm. Place is still being decided.

Phil McLemore has taught and written about meditation for many years. He has studied under Deepak Chopra and has special training in the Kriya yoga tradition of meditation under Roy Davis, a direct student of Paramahansa Yogananda. Phil is a retired LDS chaplain and has taught seminars to LDS groups in Utah as well as various online seminars.


The unique contribution that Phil brings to meditation is he teaches that through a personal meditation practice, the deeper meaning of Christ’s teaching are revealed and understood. Phil will share some of these deeper meanings that bring the New Testament alive.

No particular religious affiliation is necessary, however.

There is a $25/person charge which cover’s Phil’s travel expenses as well as contributes to a charity for neglected animals.

Space is limited, but we need a commitment/head count as soon as possible. Please reply if you would like to come or have more questions. Please help us spread the word by forwarding or inviting any of your friends who might be interested.
Contact info is to Sheldon and Liza Lawrence.
