Reducing Anxiety through Meditation

Monday, September 24, 2018 @ 7:00 PM

Woodbridge Main Library - Ground Floor Meeting Room

Life in today’s world is stressful.  People are anxious about their health, their finances, their relationships, their safety and their work. Please join Jim Rose, M Ed Rutgers University, retired Senior Executive of Johnson & Johnson who has been meditating for over 30 years for this engaging and powerful workshop on Monday, September 24, 7pm @ the Woodbridge Main Library.
Doctors and medical practitioners are promoting the benefits of meditation to relieve stress and anxiety.  By sitting in meditation, we can calm the body and the mind.  We can slow our brain waves to states of relaxation. When we are in a state of physical and mental calmness, we have more control over our reactions towards life’s stressors.  We can make better decisions.  We can react more calmly to others, alleviating the tension in our relationships. Once we connect to a place of happiness and peace within us, we experience a reduction in our anxiety.  Through meditation we can cope with the stresses of life.  Meditation helps us replace anxiety with joy and peace. During this program there will be a short meditation sitting. 
This program is free and open to all. The Woodbridge Main Library is located at 1 George Frederick Plaza, Woodbridge, NJ 07095.
