CBD 2023: iPause Guided practice #3 Charis Meditation (Charis, Greek for “Grace”), Netanel Miles-Yépez, DD

October 27, 2023 | 7:30am - 8:15am

Charis Meditation is a two part meditation process that is meant to serve as the foundation of one's spiritual life, especially for those without a specific religious or spiritual affiliation.
Charis (care-iss) is the Greek for 'grace,' and refers here to the receptive openness of the technique in which grace is emphasized over effort.
