Stress-reducing meditation series begins at Greenwich Library

Cultivate your skills of mindful meditation at Greenwich Library’s new series beginning Tuesday, June 3 at 2 p.m.

Instructor Jim Bandler will teach participants how to use the practice of meditation to increase awareness and live in the present moment without self-judgment. Mr. Bandler has been practicing meditation for over 25 years and has taught at many hospitals and universities.

Mindfulness was originally taught by the Buddha some 1,700 years ago and was made popular by the author and lecturer Jon Kabat-Zinn in the 1940s with his book Wherever You Go, There You Are.

Since 1967, over 1,500 studies have been conducted by over 250 independent research institutes showing Mindfulness Meditation to be clinically effective for the management of stress, anxiety and panic, chronic pain, depression, obsessive thinking, strong emotional reactivity, and a wide array of medical and mental health related conditions.

Sessions will continue on alternate Tuesdays through Sept. 9. Dates include: June 3, 17, July 1, 15, 29, Aug. 12, 26 and Sept. 9. Participants may attend one session or attend all eight sessions. No previous meditation experience is necessary, and walk-ins are welcome. Each class will consist of part lecture, part Q&A period and a period of meditation.

This event is open to all at no charge and will be held in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room. No registration is required.
