Relax Your Mind and Body Through Meditation

Tuesday, August 20, 2019, 7:00 pm

Being relaxed can help ease stress and tension. It can also relieve anxiety, depression and sleep problems. With true relaxation you can tap into the peace and calmness by quieting the mind. Your body in turn also reacts when you start to relax. This can have a profound positive effect on your over all well-being . Join Sangeeta Sinha, M. Ed, long time meditator for this informative workshop. There will even be a short meditation sitting to try this out firsthand.
