Meditation Offerings at The Temperance Center: Our clientele can experience meditation and healing in a variety of ways.

Merrill Black, founder and owner of The Temperance Center, says she’s always looking for new and exciting things to bring to the center’s community of clients, with meditation and healing at the forefront. “Our clientele can experience meditation and healing in a variety of ways,” she says. “We’ve offered bimonthly guided channeling meditation groups for several years now, allowing for healing and shifts in consciousness, and recently we also introduced a sound bath workshop for relaxation and meditation purposes.”

In February, Black will team up with Sean Rachlin, a licensed massage therapist and acupuncturist, to lead a special workshop combining acupuncture and meditation.

“A single acupuncture point, placed in a specific location known to have a very calming effect on the body, will be used while the clients lie comfortably in svasana,” she says. “There will be a guided meditation along with mudras, mantras and healing bowls to encourage intuition, inspiration and insight. This combination also offers a deeper state of relaxation and meditative journey.”

The Temperance Center is located at 453 White Plains Rd., Ste. 201/203, Eastchester, NY. For more information about this and other events, visit or call 914.793.2600.
