A Taste of Meditation

The word “meditation” conjures many stereotypical ideas – someone twisted like a pretzel, sitting motionless under a tree for hours; a group of people chanting “OHHHHHHHMMMM”; Buddhist monks, walking in circles with candles.

BUT.

Meditation, simply put, is making a choice to focus your mind on something.  Meditation provides a sense of calm, peace, and balance that benefits our emotional, physical, and spiritual health, and it’s accessible to everyone.

First UCC is offering a free 6-week meditation series.  Because there is no one-size-fits-all type of meditation, we will experience eight different styles; hopefully one will resonate with you.  Attend any or all of the classes.  Designed for beginners, and open to everyone.  Child care provided.

February 17 – Coffee Drinking meditation (non-coffee drinkers welcome)
February 24 – Mandala meditation
March 3 – Mudra meditation
March 10 – Mantra meditation
March 17 – Labyrinth & Gazing meditation
March 24 – Conscious Relaxation & Silence meditation

Classes will meet at First UCC in the Northfield Day Care space from 9:30 – 10:00am.  Led by Melissa Sharpe.
