March 2011 Meditation ~ March 6 & 20

Tashi Delek!
Translation ~ Wishes for an Auspicious New Year!

Join us for an hour of peace & stillness.

Meditation Practice in March will be:
  • Sunday, March 6
  • Sunday, March 20

We meet at 5:00 p.m. at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio, 145 Byrd Street, in Orange, VA.

March 5 begins the celebration of Losar, Tibetan New Year. This year is the year of the Yin Metal Rabbit. The yin is feminine, nurturing energy. Metal is strong. And, the rabbit is peaceful. The Yin Metal Rabbit is believed to bring a year of peace and is considered to be among the best of years. Losar is celebrated over several days and the first days are for celebrating with family and taking time for meditation.

So, our practice on March 6 will be perfectly timed as we open our hearts to a new season and a new year!

Our one-hour practice is in the Mindfulness Tradition. There is a guided meditation, a bit of gentle stretching, and walking and silent meditation. Beginners are welcome ... all you need is an open heart and the desire to find some stillness in your day.

Pillows, bolsters, and chairs are provided. Or, bring your own favorite sitting pillow. Fee: Donation. (Your donation supports expenses at the studio, thank you for your kindness.)

I hope you will join us! Email me at peacefulhands (at) gmail.com or call me at 540.672.9528 with any questions.
