St. Luke’s is offering a weekly one-hour class on meditation and contemplative prayer in the Library starting at 3:30 pm on Friday, January 13. These free classes, open to members of St. Luke’s and the community at large, will be guided by Caroline Altmann. Join us to learn and practice two forms of contemplation – mindfulness, which focuses on awareness, and metta meditation, which focuses on opening the heart to loving kindness. Both can be therapeutic and contribute to a variety of positive health indicators including lower blood pressure and stress and a stronger immune system. Everyone is welcome to participate once in a while or regularly.
