What we're about
ENJOY COMMUNITY WELLNESS (980 Hope St., Stamford) invites you to attend our new community meditation class. Come and see what "quieting the mind"
is all about. First class is always free! (6:30pm-7:15pm, TUESDAY night).
Meditation--the practice of 'stilling' the mind and body-- has been around for a millennia. It's been scientifically proven to benefit our minds and our bodies by reducing stress, boosting our immune system, aiding digestion, lowering blood pressure, facilitating healthy sleep...all accomplished through mindfulness that meditation brings. Studies have shown that regular meditation (20 minutes/at least 3x a week) increases the "gray matter' in our brain and greatly enhances our ability to think, react and respond calmly to adverse stimuli in our lives.
Meditation is NOT about eliminating thoughts from your mind...it's about managing the thousands of thoughts that we have everyday and to bring some quiet/peaceful moments to our lives. WIth regular practice, meditation can be called on 'at will', whenever you're stressed or just have too much on your plate to handle.
Come learn what meditation is all about. Our instructor Aiden utilizes soft instruments (such as Tibetan bowls) to enhance our meditative focus.
