The stress of the holidays and 2019 are almost behind us. Many of us are making resolutions to improve our bodies and minds. In that spirit the Markesan Library is offering a series of meditation classes to guide you to your goals. The series will be led by Dr. Jennifer D. Culver, who has extensive training and credentials in many fields, including Mindfulness Education.

As Dr. Culver explains on her website, “meditation is an opportunity to pause – breathe – and be present in the body and mind. In a world of busyness, meditation offers the opportunity to rewire the brain and provide healing through calming techniques. Stress management is one of the most common reasons why people meditate. In doing so, there is a reduction in the stress hormone cortisol, thus reducing inflammation in the body. Meditation can be daunting and there’s benefit in being guided by a mindful leader. When meditators come together in a group setting it enhances the benefit.”
