Meditation Workshop Series
March 15 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:30pm on Friday, repeating until Friday, March 29, 2019
The ability to stay calm and centered during times of stress is a desirable skill to possess; it is especially important during an illness such as cancer. Richard Parker, an 11-year cancer survivor, will present a meditation workshop series designed for cancer patients and survivors, both in and out of treatment.
This series will consist of four 90-minute sessions, and will focus on many different styles of meditation. Participants will explore the plentiful gateways to meditation, including sound, motion, darkness, the sense of smell, and more. Individuals will be able to practice each type and decide which techniques they can draw from to build a regular, enjoyable and beneficial meditation practice for themselves.
Group instructor Richard Parker has been practicing meditation since 1971. He is trained in Mindfulness, Transcendental, Shamanic and Tantric meditation techniques and has been teaching meditation and yoga for the last six years.
This series will take place on Fridays, March 1, 8, 15 and 29, from 1:30-3 p.m., and be held at Destination Health at 53 Main St. in Bar Harbor. It is free and open to all. If you have questions or to register, please call the Beth Wright Center at 664-0339.
