MEDITATION WITH DR. ANDREW VIDICH
Great Barrington, 5:30-7:00pm
Meditation: For Total Health and Happiness
Can meditation make you happier, healthier and smarter? Researchers are finding evidence of meditation's beneficial effects on the brain. Meditation allows you to increase your happiness and helps calm the mind’s constant chatter. Meditation strengthens your mindfulness which in turn enhances all aspects of your life. Studies show that when you meditate you tune into a consciousness that has many lasting benefits while also decreasing stress and increasing one’s well being. This can produce significant changes in your brain and overall well being. Join Dr. Andrew Vidich, author, educator and international speaker who has been meditating for over 40 years for this engaging and powerful workshop. This program is at our Mason Library at 231 Main St. in Great Barrington. Please see our website at http://gblibraries.org for more details.

The forum will address the anticipated impact of the project on environmental and public health, tourism, recreation and property values, and will outline why this is a county-wide problem and requires a county-wide response. Participants will explore why the long-term implications of this project jeopardize the essence of the Berkshires. Stakeholders affected by the project include.
