The Saints in Training Word of the Month for December 2018 is PROTECT. The Saboteur of PROTECT is CONTROL. What do we want to protect? The mind. How do we protect the mind? That is the subject of the last video for 2018.
You may recognize our location this month as the hearth belonging to the beautiful space in Oceanside where we are privileged to hold workshops and meditation classes.
