Summer mindfulness and meditation classes

A series of one-hour mindfulness and meditation classes will be offered at the Ridgefield Library this summer on four Mondays: July 10, July 17, July 31 and Aug.7 at 7 p.m. Meditation offers countless benefits, including improved emotional regulation, focus, resilience, compassion, and mental and physical health.

The library is pleased to host the Community Mindfulness Project — a local, secular meditation group dedicated to the study and practice of mindfulness meditation for people of all religious backgrounds. CMP’s teachings draw from a variety of meditation traditions, and in addition to regular, dedicated practice, the group supports new and veteran practitioners with discussion and   peer-to-peer learning.

This program is part of the Body, Mind and Spirit: Holistic Health and Wellness series that is made possible thanks to the Noreen L. Papa Fund. This program is also part of the Build A Better World Adult Summer Reading program that is made possible thanks to the Friends of the Library. Registration is recommended for each class.
