Meditation can be a life altering, even life saving, practice. It is a way of awakening to the present moment, letting go of past and future, seeing with fresh eyes, and cleansing your mind. Every Tuesday night at 7 PM, Max leads a meditation class in the Meetinghouse. There will be a 5 minute instruction, followed by 15 minutes of practice. If you are curious to see what this is like, video recordings are available online.

Yoga with Max is a moderate Kripalu yoga aimed for people of all abilities and experience. The goal of the class is to promote spiritual and physical well being through a series of postures that can be adapted for those who need either less or more strenuous experience. The class meets on Tuesdays from 9 am until 10:15 am in our Kraft Hall. The class is free, although free will offerings are welcome.
