Meditation Workshop

Thursday, October 23, 2019

11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Meditation is now mainstream and is being practiced in many different places in many different ways. The meditation that will be taught has its roots in Zen practice. In our everyday lives we can see how complex life can be and how we need to have a place to relax and catch our breath sometimes.

In this workshop you will learn that this place of rest already exists in our own bodies. The most important point is to learn how to simply sit, and be comfortable and restful - a practice and tool that can be applied to any life endeavor. The instructor for this informative workshop is Joseph Armenio.

This workshop is free to members, and for everyone else there will be a $2.00 drop-in fee.

Wednesdays starting on November 6, 2019

11:15 am - 12:15 pm

This is a class based on the idea that moving creatively, no matter how gently, helps with reducing stress, anxiety, and in some cases, pain. Moving improves memory and cognitive skills in general. This class includes a long warm-up and stretching exercises, using movements from Qigong, Tai Chi, Creative Movement, and Brain Gym. Participants may sit or stand. This is a very basic movement class for anyone who is recovering from an illness or injury.
