January Meditation Practice ~ 1/2 & 1/16

It was so nice to see the news in CNN and elsewhere in recent weeks that Western scientists are understanding more and more how meditation strengthens the brain in positive -- and permanent -- ways.

Anyone who sits in quiet for a few minutes knows how refreshing and rewarding the practice of stillness can be. Now science is showing us that the long-term benefits of meditation can be as profound as the short-term peacefulness that meditation brings.

And, that is why I'm glad to offer meditation practice at my yoga studio, Peaceful Hands Massage & Yoga, each month.

We meet on the first and the third Sunday of each month. For January 2011 we will meet:

  • Sunday, January 2
  • Sunday, January 16

Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio is located at 145 Byrd Street in downtown Orange, Virginia.

Our one-hour practice includes a guided meditation, walking meditation, and time for your own silent meditation or contemplative practice. No experience is necessary, just an open heart and the desire to still the noise of outside distractions, if only for an hour. We have pillows, bolsters, and chairs for sitting, or bring your own meditation pillow or zafu.

There is no cost to attend, although donations are gratefully accepted to help cover the studio's expenses.

For more information email me at peacefulhands (at) gmail.com, call 540-672-9528 ... or simply come to practice and give the stillness a chance.

I hope you will join us.
