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.
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.
