Meditate and Create: Together we can Energize the Vision

Radiance Wellbeing at A Touch of Comfort |

What would you like to create in your neighborhood? We invite you to begin this exploration through meditation—the art of slowing down, giving yourself space, breathing room, and a pause from the everyday whirl of existence. When practiced, meditation can liberate creative inspiration, boosting the ability to see goals and solutions from a broader perspective. Meditation in neighborhoods can also promote feelings of belonging and reduce feelings of isolation.

Participants: Four to as many participants as the space can accommodate
Ages: Adults and youth age 12 and older
Value: $300.00
Requirements: Whether you’ve never tried meditation or you practice daily, come to the 90-minute class with yoga and meditation teacher Mary Ann Walker. You’ll learn about and experience four common types: guided, walking, sound, and silent meditations. See how the art of meditation can connect your neighborhood! Please provide an inside or outside space for the class. The walking meditation is best done outside in a natural area without much traffic. For inside or outside, please provide chairs. For inside, electricity would be helpful for temperature control. For outside, a rain date or back-up space is needed.
