Natural Awakenings NYC & Long Island

Breathe Deeply at Free Group Meditation

Natural Awakenings NYC and Long Island Co-Publisher Michael Lehrman will lead this month’s free Mind, Body & Breathe virtual group meditation from 6 to 6:30 p.m., January 18, on Google Meets. 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. “The benefits of breathing and sitting in meditation are appreciated even more when shared in a group dynamic,” he says. 

Lehrman will facilitate the session consisting 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.

“When the holidays clear and we return to normal routines, mid-January can feel an imbalance. This session will help you to reconnect with yourself, calm the body and mind, and integrate the natural rhythms of your breath into your everyday encounters,” says Lehrman. 

No experience and no expectations are necessary; participants can choose on or off-camera, and the sessions will not be recorded. Afterward, 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]
