We are pleased to announce that Guided Meditation classes will continue in the library every Tuesday and Thursday through the Spring semester.  The sessions are held from 1:00pm to 1:30pm in the Studio, which is located on the first floor of the library. This semester, the Alexander Technique will also be taught from 1:30pm to 2:00pm.

The goal of meditation is to facilitate physical and mental relaxation allowing mindfulness to become a part of everyday life.  This reduces stress and increases feelings of well-being, and compassion for oneself and others. Present moment awareness trains the brain to better focus on the task at hand facilitating clearer decision-making.

Betty Mooney, a practicing meditator for over 12 years, will once again be leading the sessions.  She has attended weeklong retreats with Thich Nhat Hahn and Tara Brach, and has taken courses from Rick Hanson and Jack Kornfield.

The sessions are free. Beginners and those with previous meditation experience are welcome.

Questions? Please contact Dan Wilson.
