"Strengthening Pontiac Through Literacy Partnerships"
Thursdays, 6:30-7:30pm, Zoom: Join us on Zoom for our returning Heartfulness Medication program every Thursday at 6:30pm. The Heartfulness Meditation Program offers a simple set of relaxation and meditation exercises, which when practiced daily, help restore balance in life, manage stress, better your health, and most of all will lead you to inner calm and peace. The relaxation and meditation techniques are taught over free courses: Each class covers both the conceptual framework as well as practical meditation and relaxation sessions (classes last for 1 hour). As classes progress, we add other techniques to help you go into a deep meditative state, faster. Ideally, all participants may register for all six sessions. Participants will be meditating in chairs. Those wishing to meditate while sitting on the floor may bring their own floor cushions. The entire program will be conducted by certified Heartfulness trainers, who have been meditating and training for several years. The link for the Zoom session follows below:
