Meditation for Everyone, Ongoing Virtual Series on Fridays at 9:30am

PLEASE NOTE: This is an ongoing program and newcomers are welcome. If you have not attended before, please contact Beth at lawryb2@einetwork for introductory materials and the next Zoom link.

New joiners must contact the library for an introductory video and materials. Sessions run Friday mornings from 9:30am to 10:00am. The program is virtual, presented via Zoom. (A link will be sent to you prior to each week’s session.) This class is free (though donations to the library welcome through the website). Participants should commit to the 4-week session each month.

Carve 30 minutes out of your week to learn simple and practical meditation techniques that can easily be applied in everyday life. Science based benefits of meditation include reduced stress and anxiety levels, improved mood, increased self-awareness, increased energy, memory boost, healthy sleep habits, increased immunity and unconditional joy. Through the practice of meditation, we cultivate inner peace, harmony and well-being. Each session will include a brief discussion and experiential practice. Session includes handouts  to support your home practice. All levels of meditators welcome.   

Teacher Cynthia Ballard is grateful to have discovered the gift of yoga and meditation while navigating through an illness over 20 years ago. She found the practices so beneficial in managing her symptoms that she began to share with others through her experience. Cynthia is a 500+ hour certified yoga teacher specializing in meditation, relaxation, hatha yoga, yoga nidra, restorative yoga, and mobility practices. Cynthia has taught at a local yoga studio for over 14 years and has been volunteering at Our Clubhouse (cancer support center) for over 13 years sharing practices for peace and well-being. Cynthia has also shared these practices at the Hillman Cancer Center, MS Society and hospice.
