Meditation is a simple and relaxing way of training your mind for a more joyful and peaceful life. Numerous scientific studies have shown that meditation, practiced regularly, can improve mental as well as physical well-being. Studies conducted in university labs and hospitals have shown that meditation can reduce stress, depression, anxiety and blood pressure. Meditation can also improve memory and brain function, boost the immune system and help people deal with chronic pain. Meditation is now being taught in schools and universities, hospitals, large companies and even the military. Different kinds of meditation will be explored, including mindfulness, visualizations, meditation with sound, walking meditation and loving kindness meditation. Beginners and experienced meditators are welcome. Meet at 3:15 p.m. to set up; class will start at 3:30 p.m.
