What participants have to say about the weekly meditations

“I like the mediation, the friendly welcoming staff, the creation of a comfortable safe space, and the view of the Ramapo Mountains.  The opportunity for quiet reflection”

“The combination of a guided meditation and being in silent communion with other meditators in a completely comfortable room, with comfortable chairs and cushions.”

“I find the experience to be soothing, and returned to my desk more productive and centered.”

“I have attended both Wednesday night free meditations so far and found them both worthwhile. Each different because of the leader, but each type had fruitful results for the life thinking which I am doing now. I am so pleased to have found the Krame Center at this time of my life!” -Gail

“Love the meditation classes. They have added quality to my life”  – Myra


Free Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation Workshop

Wednesday, January 16 2019
7-8:30pm (please arrive no later than 6:45pm.)
Anisfield School of Business Room 420, Ramapo College of New Jersey

Information

Mindfulness is a purposeful way of focusing attention to the present moment and promotes a presence in the here and now that is often lost in today’s fast paced society. Research indicates that a mindfulness practice, including meditation, decreases anxiety and stress while enhancing the ability to concentrate and pay attention. The physical and psychological benefits of meditation and mindfulness practices have been well documented.

Learn to meditate at this introductory session. The program will briefly review the meaning and benefits of mindfulness practices, and then present an experiential introduction to breath-based meditation practice. Suggestions will be offered on how to integrate a simple, but effective, mindfulness practice into one’s everyday life. We ask participants to please wear comfortable clothing to the event.
