The Patterson Library is hosting Serenity in the Park, a summer meditation series with Terry Ariano, beginning this month in the library’s outdoor park space. Classes are for adults ages 18 and older and take place from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on June 26, July 10 and August 21, 2024. Participants are asked to bring a yoga mat and cushion and Ariano will lead them through meditation skills amidst the beauty of the Patterson Library Park.

Through this guided meditation series, participants will begin to develop awareness of their reactive mind and to practice mindfulness to bring calm into their daily life. Breathing techniques to calm the body will be explored, and meditation will take place in both seated and reclining postures.

“In my classes, I strive to impart a sense of possibility to those who come to practice, to allow people to develop in their individual ways, and provide positive feedback while students find what works for them,” says Ariano. “As spirit and nature are very important in my life, I try to integrate these elements into classes, and encourage students to draw inspiration from the beauty and magic in the world around them.”

Location: Patterson Library, 1167 Rte. 311, Patterson. For more information or to register (required), call 845-878-6121 or visit and click “calendar.”
