Meditation Tour for Beginners in Southern Westchester County
March 3, from 1 to 2 p.m
Kellye Davis, an international restorative yoga and meditation teacher and the author of The Bliss Principle: Easy Ways to Go from Stress to Peace, will lead a free meditation tour through southern Westchester County, hosting monthly hour-long events at area libraries. The first event is scheduled for March 3, from 1 to 2 p.m., at the Pelham Public Library, located at 530 Colonial Avenue.
Davis’s Learn to Meditate: Stress to Peace Tour is geared for beginning meditators. Each stop will entail meditation tips and intervals of direct meditation. Participants who want to sit on the floor should bring a small pillow or yoga mat; otherwise a chair will be provided.
Davis says the tour was born out of her desire to make learning to meditate easy and accessible for anyone, while delivering personal results for the meditator.
“Most important, it will introduce new participants to the practice and teach them how to deal with busy thoughts while meditating, which is one the first complaints people have when they start,” Davis says. “Meditation is a simple, powerful practice, especially if you know from the start basic tips for bypassing the busy thoughts that arise in the mind while you’re sitting for meditation. When that happens, you can dive deep into your own blissful state. The bliss we invoke within when we meditate is spiritual energy that heals stress in the mind, body and emotions and creates inner joy.”
