Anxiety Relief with Effortless Meditation

Greg Schweitzer, a meditation teacher of 40 years who has taught Dr. Wayne Dyer and George Harrison, will provide two free, one-and-a-half-hour introductory classes on Effortless Meditation, valued at $20, at 9 a.m., on Saturday, August 12 and at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 23, at Twin Ponds Integrative Health Center. The entire course comprises 10 hours of instruction.

Effortless Meditation is natural medicine and an antidote for the stress response. It has been scientifi cally validated by extensive research and recommended by physicians as a self-care technique with documented benefi ts for managing high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, fatigue, pain, brain fog and more.

While practicing this mental technique, the mind effortlessly settles down to the quiet state that exists beneath the busyness on its surface. Under stress, our mind is like a stormy ocean. The waves are turbulent on the surface, however deep below, the sea is calm. Meditation accesses the quieter states of the mind as the body begins to rest deeply, releasing stress and inner tension.

Location: 628 Twin Ponds Rd., Breinigsville, PA. For more information and to preregister, call 610-395-3355 or visit TwinPondsCenter.com.
