Anam Cara Leads Meditation and Mindfulness Programs
A nonprofit dedicated to making meditation instruction available to everyone.
Anam Cara Meditation Center in Armonk
The Anam Cara Meditation Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to making meditation instruction available to everyone, will host an introductory program, The Science and Art of Meditation, on November 30, at 7:15 p.m., at its center in Armonk. The Foundation will also host a six-week mindfulness training beginning in January and lead a meditation retreat in March at the Garrison Institute.
Founded by Lawrence Edwards, PhD, in 2001, Anam Cara regularly offers free programs at its center and online at AnamCaraMeditation.org. Thousands of people worldwide receive its monthly e-newsletter, which features supportive teachings and quotes related to meditation from a variety of different perspectives.
The mindfulness training will begin January 10 at the Anam Cara center, located at 2 Byram Brook Place, Suite 2, Armonk. The meditation retreat, Living through Dying, will be held March 16-18 at the Garrison Institute, located at 14 Mary’s Way, Route 9D, Garrison.
“This retreat focuses on the power of meditative and spiritual practices to support us through the many forms that death and dying take in our lives,” Edwards says. “We often have to die to relationships, hopes, dreams and work, as well as loved ones, and ultimately we will all face death. Ancient wisdom traditions give us insights, practices and the guidance we need to move through these experiences in ways that can lead to healing, expansiveness and even greater creativity and new life.”
Edwards has published articles on mindfulness meditation and biofeedback and is a leading authority on Kundalini, the esoteric root of yoga.
