Meditation in Current Times / Virtual

Thursday, September 30, 6:30 PM
 Location: Zoom

Join us on Zoom to learn about meditation and how it can be a useful tool in coping with everyday stressors and change how we react to them. Regular meditation provides many benefits such as reducing stress, helping with depression, anxiety, and pain, and improving concentration. During the workshop you will learn a simple and time tested meditation technique. There will even be a chance to try this out. Daya Sharma will be hosting the workshop.
