Meditation 101

by Emma Zevallos (she/her)

One Saturday a month, 11:00am to 12:30pm MT

Please e-mail wellness@utahpridecenter.org for specific ability modifications (occupational therapist on staff).

This meditation class will help you to connect to your higher self and raise your vibration as well as the collective vibration, so that you are not distracted by the thoughts, emotions, or sensations that arise at the moment. It will help you to be present in the here and now and in complete observation of the present so that you can enter higher states of consciousness.

The journey is a path of personal self-knowledge, which you walk with the desire to discover yourself better. Over the next 6 months, we will navigate this self-discovery journey together and learn as a group. This class structure is the following: the first-hour a meditation will be held for about 40 minutes and the second hour you will be learning about tools to implement in your daily life to raise your vibration such as: how to create an altar, how to clean yourself and space energetically, how to balance your chakras through food, how to ground yourself in nature, how to channel your life force energy through your hands for self-healing, how to prepare a spiritual bath, etc.

What to Bring

You will need a yoga mat or meditation cushion or pillow, you will need a journal and a pen. Incense, sage, or Palo Santo if you have some to have ready prior to the meditation or if you have a crystal or rock that you would like to hold during the meditation that is recommended as well but not required.

After spending time in the prevention field, she was called to work more closely with survivors and accepted a position as Client Liaison Advocate where she acted as a bridge for survivors and worked to connect them to resources and referrals based on their individual needs. Then, she was promoted to the Client Coordinator position for the Rape Recovery Center and worked at overseeing the day-to-day operation of the 24-hour crisis line and is leadership for the Hospital Response Team, with an emphasis on client care and closing gaps in service.

Emma interconnects the practice of self-care, radical acceptance, and self-love into her healing practices. Emma’s life purpose is to teach and inspire others to find their healing during this massive awakening that we are currently experiencing today in the earth. By helping to raise and teach others to how to raise and sustain the vibrational levels and to be able to transcend as a collective as humanity.
