The Fairfield County Transcendental Meditation® Program, in conjunction with the David Lynch Foundation, is offering free introductory presentations on the Transcendental Meditation Technique at C..H. Booth Library this summer.
Programs are planned for Tuesday, July 2, at 6:30 pm, and Thursday, August 1, at 6:30 pm. Both will be offered in the meeting room of the library, at 25 Main Street.
The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple, natural program for the mind to experience a more settled state, increasingly quiet and silent levels while it remains alert. In this state of restful alertness, the brain functions with significantly greater coherence and the body gains deep rest for the release of chronic and deep stress.
The David Lynch Foundation was established in 2005 to fund the implementation of scientifically proven stress-reducing modalities, especially the Transcendental Meditation technique, for at-risk populations and high stress circumstances. Groups that have benefited include inner city school students; veterans with PTSD and their families; American Indians suffering from diabetes, cardiovascular disease and high suicide rates; incarcerated juveniles and adults; people participating in reentry programs striving to overcome addictions, and other stress related conditions.
