It teaches us to slow things down and rediscover our self-value. Allow light to shine on its own, just as yours does.If you feel in need of mental clarity or mindfulness, stop by The DEN meditation studio for guided group meditation and mindfulness classes.When we meditate regularly there is a shift in view that takes place.
