Meditation is an ancient practice that exists in some form in almost every faith tradition. It has as many definitions as ways of practicing it, but everyone agrees that it benefits health and well-being. Scientific research shows that it improves mood, increases brain volume, empathy and social connection while enhancing physical health. Meditation can also reduce stress. Meditation is an easy to learn skill that can be done anywhere without any equipment. This class will give participants the tools to practice meditation, and the support of a community to get started.
This introductory class will be offered Sunday, September 20th and Thursday, October 29th in the Cultural Center’s second floor studio from 6-8pm. Fee is just $3 and is open to teenagers on up.
