Meditation:
A simple, fast way to reduce stress
 
by The Mayo Clinic

 


"If stress has you anxious, tense and worried, consider trying meditation. Spending even a few minutes in meditation can restore your calm and inner peace.

Anyone can practice meditation. It's simple and inexpensive, and it doesn't require any special equipment.

And you can practice meditation wherever you are — whether you're out for a walk, riding the bus, waiting at the doctor's office or even in the middle of a difficult business meeting." Read full article

Upcoming Workshops at WYC
Renunciation:
A Loving Response at a Time of Global Crisis and Fear

with Vicki Goodman
Sunday, April 12, 2020 | 5:30-6:45 p.m.



 

This is an unprecedented time for all of us. In our lifetime we have never seen or experienced a time like this.
 
We have been asked to, mistakenly, "social distance," which for many has become social isolation. In reality we need to physically distance to help stop the spread of the corona virus. What we need now more than ever, is to see that we are all in this together as a community and to find social connections in new ways.

For most of us, the reality of the easy spread of this untreatable virus and the continual daily life adjustments have bred great fear. Renunciation is a way of freeing ourselves from the endless cycles of struggling with wanting – the root cause of suffering. It is the art of doing less rather than more. 

In this workshop we will endeavor to calm the mind and find new ways of understanding what is happening in these times so that we can have a more loving and more appreciative way of relating to what is happening in this very life.

Tools for Uncertain Times
with Sarah Cahill
Saturday, Apr 18, 2020 | 4:00-5:30 p.m.



We are living in a time of extraordinary change.
Not only week to week, but day to day.


 

Our way of life changing so rapidly it’s hard for the mind to keep up, often leaving us anxious. That sense of not being in control. Uncertain. We each have tools right inside, available to help us reconnect to our center at any time. Breath and meditation are two such tools.

In this workshop you will practice a number of different breathing patterns that calm the nervous system and provide a still point, keeping you grounded while riding through this current storm. A simple guided meditation will follow with breath as the focus.

The workshop will end with a guided deep relaxation and savasana, leaving you with an inner sense of peace and a better connection to this moment…..which is perfect.
