All are invited to join us at the Northborough Free Library on Saturday, October 19th from 10 AM – 2 PM for a Meditation Retreat for Collective Wellness with Academic Dr. Dhanjoo Ghista.
Dr. Ghista, who lives in Northborough, has been a University Professor throughout his life and has been offering a 7-part series on guided meditation at the Library for the past 3 years. He has been involved in institutional developments, in planning and modeling universities. In his work in academic settings, Professor Ghista has mentored several doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows, many of whom became professors, department heads and deans at universities. He has also done extensive research and published papers on the science of meditation and its effect on the mind and body.
During this retreat, we will explore the fundamental concepts of meditation in order to practice cosmic thinking and evolve spiritually, mentally and physically.
This 4-hour Retreat will bring together those from our community who are interested in how meditation benefits individually and collectively, and can contribute to a more spiritual, wellness and progressive community living. With this in mind, the Retreat will comprise a 30-minute session on guided group meditation, after which all those attending will have the opportunity to discuss issues of interest to them, as well as some of the following topics:
The Retreat will begin with a 30-minute guided meditation, and it will end with a 15-minute non-guided group meditation. In-between meditating, we will have small group discussions devoted to the above topics.
PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE by going to www.northboroughlibrary.org and using our online registration button, or by calling Adult Services at 508-393-5025 x5.
A good will offering of $5 will be gratefully accepted. All proceeds will go to the Northboro Food Pantry to help those in need in our community.
Please note the Meditation Retreat is intended for those aged 14 and up. No prior knowledge or practice of meditation is necessary and all are welcome to attend.
