MEDITATION PROGRAM RETURNS TO MONONA TERRACE
Monona Terrace is pleased to again offer mindfulness meditation at no cost for the public in part through the generous sponsorship of Dean/St. Mary's. The sessions will take place at Monona Terrace from 11:45am to 12:30pm on Mondays, March 23 through May 18 (no class April 20) in the Community Terrace located on level two.
Mindfulness meditation can reconnect you with a sense of calm and inner peace. It is simple, inexpensive, and doesn't require any special equipment. Mindfulness can be brought to any of your daily activities ... out for a walk, riding the bus, waiting at the doctor's office or even in the middle of a difficult business meeting. It can provide a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both emotional well-being and overall health.
Mindfulness meditation will be led by Sarah Moore M.D., a mind-body practitioner, therapist, and physician at the Dean Hematology and Oncology Clinic. Sarah has been practicing meditation for 14 years and teaching meditation to groups and individuals for the past six years. Her personal practice has brought her much peace, joy and stability, and she is excited to share her knowledge and enthusiasm with others. Joining Sarah will be Ross Buttner, a doctoral student in Psychology. He has been meditating for over 15 years, having lived at Spirit Rock Meditation Center for two of them. He has led a number of meditation groups, and regularly does guided meditations for domestic violence offenders for his job. He is also finishing his dissertation on the obstacles that Westerners face when learning meditation.
Chairs will be available. Walk-ins are welcome. These sessions are provided through the generous support of Dean Clinic and Dr. Moore. Parking is available for $1.50/hour in the Monona Terrace parking ramp at One John Nolen Drive. For more information call (608) 261-4000 or visit communityevents.mononaterrace.com.
