Find Peace in the Park at 2nd Annual Maplewood Meditates

The following is from Maplewood Meditates

Do you want to attain clarity, feel less stressed, tap into your innate creativity, sleep better, become more focused and productive, and have greater health and wellness in your life? If so then beginning a practice of meditation can be the place to start. Not sure how? Don’t worry. There is no right or wrong way. On September 8th, Anne Sussman and Dr. Kate Smith will lead a free 20 minute meditation and sound bath.

This community meditation is the perfect opportunity to come see what this calming practice is all about. According to Deepak Chopra, “Even though meditation is an individual practice at heart, the resonance effect of doing it in groups makes the meditation more profound personally and socially.”

This free event will take place Friday, September 8 from 6-7 P.M. at the Maplewood Memorial Park Amphitheater (across from the train station) on the corner of Oakview Avenue and Dunnell Road.
