VIRTUAL Meditation P
Main Library
Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2:00 - 3:00

Join us ONLINE for this timely meditation program.  Within us all lie resources we never knew we had – wisdom, fearlessness, unconditional love and happiness. Learn how meditation can help us access these qualities and discover its power to improve our lives. Arvind Naik will present a simple effective meditation technique that will reveal new states of awareness and help us tap into inner resources. There will be a short meditation sitting.

We’re delighted to offer this program ONLINE so you can safely participate at home. The day before the event we’ll send a link so you can join on your phone, tablet or computer. Check your email when registering so you’ll be sure to get the link.


Arvind Naik has an MBA in Global Business Management from NYIT and works as a Data Architect in Information Technology. He frequently gives lectures and workshops on meditation, discussing how incorporating the practice into our daily routine can be life changing and help us develop physically, mentally, and spiritually. Arvind has led a meditation program at Target and regularly speaks at local community centers. He introduced meditation as a tool for stress reduction in the workplace at Boston Scientific and was invited by the Columbia Heights Police Department to give talks on how meditation can help the Officers with their day-to-day stress.
