Mayor’s Wellne
Wednesday, Aug. 18, 7:00 PM

On July 21st at 7pm, please join us to hear from Anjali Joshi, a certified meditation teacher, who conducts an ongoing wellness meditation program at Cranbury Library.  Anjali will explain in brief what the various meditation techniques are that come under the umbrella of mindfulness and their benefits. Well-being of mind and body are closely related and affect each other. Meditation is a skill that can be learned in the same way we learn a body exercise routine. Many people start a meditation practice because of its scientifically-proven benefits of decreasing stress levels and cultivating capacity for health and well-being and then continue after experiencing positive benefits to them. 

Anjali has learned Mindfulness from New Jersey Center of Mindful Awareness and has trained as compassion meditation teacher from Nalanda Institute, NY in 2019. Academically she has MS in Biophysics. 

In this program, she will explain in brief a meditation that can be useful for decreasing stress, anxiety, reducing physical pain and enhancing social connection, followed by around 20 minutes of guided meditation, followed by Q&A.

"This meditation session is for everyone – beginner or pro. The purpose of these meditations is to foster our sense of connection within and to others. We will practice some tools to regain our balance of mind and bodies. Research shows that practicing meditation as a skill can help to manage anxiety, stress, and worry.
