"Inner Peace: Meditation for a Healthy Mind: Learning to Accept Yourself with Sophia Ojha"

Starting in February 2018, a program of meditation and visualization, "Inner Peace: Meditation for a Healthy Mind," will be offered at the library. Local residents of all ages can come and learn how to take charge of their mental well-being. The program will focus on daily practices to calm the mind and wash away the daily stresses, using breath awareness exercises and relaxation techniques combined with guided creative visualizations. These are skills that the participants can learn and use on their own in their daily lives.
"Inner Peace" will be held in the Meeting Room on the third Saturday of each month from 3:00 pm until 4:00 pm, on February 17, March 17, April 21, and May 19. The program is hosted by Sophia Ojha Ensslin (see reflectionpond.com), a long-time meditator and writer on topics of training the mind, introspection and creating inner peace. This series is part of the mental wellness initiative funded by ARL's Good Neighbor Project: Maintaining and Managing Mental Health.
This program is helpful for anyone who wants to learn how to deal with tensions at home or stresses from the job. It can be used by students to better deal with the pressures of student life. It can help people better cope with loneliness, physical illness, depression, irritation, anger and can help increase a sense of compassion, kindness and love towards themselves and others. It is beneficial to all groups ranging from moms and dads, professionals, students, the elderly and anyone who is interested in taking care of their mental well-being.

This program is part of the mental wellness initiative funded by Appalachian Regional Library's Good Neighbor Project: Maintaining and Managing Mental Health.
