About the Class
Anxiety about the economy, world events, job-related stress, and family issues can take a toll on our physical and mental health. We may not be able to control our outer circumstances, but we can develop inner peace and resilience.
The class includes instruction in sitting and walking meditation with an awareness of breath and posture, helping participants to enter into deep relaxation. Group discussion focuses on how we can break free of old patterns and cultivate our innate wisdom and compassion, no matter how difficult the circumstances of our lives.
This course will meet from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
