The Anaheim Convention Center Mindfulness Expo Is The Weekend After Thanksgiving

Michelle Zarrin felt a bit unmoored after her divorce and having to start over. She began meditating—first for 10 minutes a day, then going to longer stretches, sometimes 11 hours at a time. She realized along her journey that her path would involve teaching meditation and mindfulness to others, and that's exactly what she's done. Today, she's a globally renowned inspirational speaker, meditation teacher and spiritual guide whose meditations on the Insight Timer app have been downloaded more than 1.3 million times.

How do you get some of what she's having? You can attend the Mindfulness Expo Zarrin founded, which happens 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The day is divided into fourteen 50-minute workshops held in two rooms; your $35 ticket gets you into as many as you'd like, all day. There are no add-on fees with your general admission ticket. Areas of focus are meditation, transforming your life through the outdoors, Kundalini yoga, sound healing, nutrition and Reiki classes. There will also be vendors on hand with relevant offerings for a more mindful life. Workshop session highlights include:

  • Zarrin's "Long-Term Benefits of Meditation," which covers how to connect with your true self, why the path isn't always filled with love and light, and how to access the tools that meditation provides for other areas of your life.
  • "Ayurveda, the Spiritual System of Medicine," covers the ancient holistic system that's gained popularity in the West. Participants will learn about the science of Ayurveda, what their "dosha" (body type) is, and how to use Ayurveda to improve their overall health.
  • "Vibe High with Your Future Self," an interactive workshop that includes an explanation of personal vibrational frequency and how it affects the rest of your life, as well as a visionary closing meditation to bring you that much closer to your future high-vibe self.
  • "Sacred Partnership: Attracting it In, Living It Out" shows how to do the inner work that attracts sacred partners to form a more conscious relationship.

All are welcome, no matter where you are on your meditation and mindfulness journey. And if you're just beginning, this is an amazing launch pad to learn about what works for you.
