Chill Out In the Library

Feeling stressed out? The library offers two programs that can help you relax: a weekly meditation group and a monthly yoga class. Both are free, thanks to the funding of the Friends of the Library!

The meditation group is led by Pepperell resident Brian Findlay and is held on Tuesday nights from 7 PM – 8:45 PM. This group is open to everyone from beginners to experienced meditators.

Brian says, “Meditation covers a variety of practices that are designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy, and develop compassion. Benefits of meditation include calming and clarity of the mind and decreased anxiety, stress, anger, fear, jealousy, and destructive thoughts. Over time, meditation can help us to better relate with others and become more empathetic in all situations.”
