Beginning in January, the Mariandale Center, in Ossining, will offer a new workshop series, Creating a Healthy Mind through Meditation, presenting new approaches to mental and emotional well-being, based on emerging research on the minds of long-term meditators.
“We’re excited to introduce a series that expands the benefits of meditation from single sessions to sustained, daily practices that offer benefits for a lifetime,” says Jane Hanley, director of Mariandale. “Meditative states are not only restorative, but continue to benefit the mind throughout the day and enable it to function in creative, effective and stable ways over time. By practicing specific meditation techniques, it is possible to retrain your brain in ways that improve mood and overall well-being.”
A sponsored ministry of the Dominican Sisters of Hope, the Mariandale Center offers retreats and programs on spirituality, the arts, writing, environmental advocacy, social justice and wellness services. Mariandale also hosts nonprofit groups and schools for workshops, retreats and conferences.
