Title Let's Meditate
October 5, 2015 - 4:00pm
Big Red Barn ((in the Greenhouse to the back of the BRB))
The semester is just beginning and we are all busy for sure. It's so easy to think, "I don't have time to meditate." But now, more than ever, is a great time to meditate. In life's paradoxical way, when we spend time meditating on a regular basis, we actually have more time. People who meditate notice they are able to accomplish more while doing less. Instead of struggling so hard to achieve goals, they seem to spend more time 'in the flow'. Attention, focus, and concentration improve, stress is reduced, and there's a calmer productivity. Take a break and join us Mondays at 4:00pm for a FREE 30-minute guided mindfulness meditation session in The Big Red Barn.
