Meditation & Mindfulness

Research shows that the practice of meditation and mindfulness reduces stress, relieves pain, helps mental health conditions and teaches people to live in and enjoy the moment.

We’ll explore these concepts and put them into practice with a two-part workshop led by Chantal Doriott, a certified instructor. The first session is an introduction to the benefits of meditation, plus practice.  The second session builds on meditative practice with an introduction to mindfulness. You can register for both of these sessions online or at the library’s front desk.

Session 1: An Introduction to Mindfulness. Monday March 11th, 6:30-7:30pm. Mindfulness helps bring awareness to what you are experiencing through your senses, thoughts and emotions. Learn daily practices and gain a new sense of curiosity.

Session 2: An Introduction to Meditation. Monday March 25th, 6:30-7:30pm. Meditation doesn’t mean you sit quietly, trying to not think. Rather, it’s an exploration of your thoughts and a gift you give yourself. Learn practices that can bring peace and a sense of calm.
