Meditation is a great way to ease stress, improve concentration and health, and develop peace of mind. Join us at the Sunset Library to learn practical meditation techniques that you can use anywhere: at home, in nature, in the middle of a busy day, or at any time. Choose from two dates: Sunday, June 26 or Sunday, July 24 [sorry - the July 24 date has been cancelled], both at 3:30 pm. (Please register for your desired date at the link.) The program is free and no mats or equipment are required; you will be seated in a chair.
Meditation is so popular that it can be found everywhere from yoga classes to corporate mindfulness courses. If yoga magazines interest you, you can download full-page issues of Yoga Journal, or check out the special issue Yoga for Beginners, from Zinio. It’s free with your library card are there are no due dates – check out as many as you like and keep them for as long as you want! (If you’ve used IndieFlix/InstantFlix, use the same login for Zinio.)
Learn more with this Mindfulness course from Lynda.com, also free to you with your valid Chandler Library card.
