CANCELLED – WILL UPDATE ONCE WE’RE ABLE TO RESCHEDULE

Mindfulness Meditation Discussion

with Maria Hanley of Willow Tree Yoga

Thursday, March 22nd, 7pm

Do you sometimes feel that you are overrun with stress, worry, or fear?  Have you ever thought that you would like to become more grounded, centered, and calm in your daily life but weren’t sure how to do it?  It is a challenge to quiet the thoughts in our minds and change the negative messages that we often tell ourselves.  There is a way!

Mindfulness meditation is a tool that has been used for thousands of years.  Come join us at the New Ipswich Library as Maria Hanley of Willow Tree Yoga leads an interactive discussion exploring mindfulness meditation, and for those that are interested, we will end with a 5-10 minute guided relaxation/meditation.  You will also learn simple techniques that you can take home to try in the quiet of your own home.

The event is free, but a donation to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry in Greenville is appreciated.
