Breathe Deeply at Free Group Meditation
Join Natural Awakenings NYC and Long Island Co-Publisher Michael Lehrman from 6 to 6:30 p.m., December 14, for this month’s free Mind, Body & Breathe virtual group meditation. Lehrman has practiced meditation for 15 years using mantras and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and created the Mind, Body & Breathe collective to share what he has learned with Natural Awakenings readers. “I’ve always appreciated the chance to breathe and sit in meditation practice with others benefiting from the shared group dynamic.”
Lehrman will facilitate the session which will consist of specific breathing techniques, including box breathing, 4-7-8 counts and rhythm breathing, in combination with this month’s meditation that uses the body as an anchor point utilizing breath, a body scan and sounds.
“These sessions will help you take a moment out of your busy day to reconnect with yourself, calm your body and mind, and take a deep breath with fellow Natural Awakenings readers,” he says.
No experience and no expectations necessary; participants can choose on or off-camera, and the sessions will not be recorded. Afterwards, participants can stay on for an open discussion to learn more about meditation and to connect with other Natural Awakenings readers.
Cost: Free. Location: Google Meets. For more information and to register, call 212-726-1420 or email [email protected].
