Saturday, August 9th, 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.
"Learn to Relax" is the theme of this workshop led by Janardhan "Jay" Chodagam and Kim Le. Jay is an engineer who has held senior positions with Bay Area software companies, but his vocation is promoting life-satisfaction through meditation training. As a meditation instructor with the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization (rooted in the tradition of Raja Yoga), Jay leads workshops for a variety of corporate and nonprofit groups.
Kim Le is the founder of Nurturing Spa for Wellness and a practitioner of Tibetan singing bowl meditation. The singing bowls are made of crystal and create different sounds and vibrations that assist with becoming mindful and grounded. The music of the singing bowls is therapeutic and healing.
Elia Pochron will provide "art as meditation" for children in the parish hall, while adults participate in the workshop in the church.
A donation of $20 is suggested, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Proceeds will benefit the second annual Peace in the Park Festival at Golden Park on Saturday, August 23 – a free event featuring music, speakers, art and activities promoting peace and serenity for people of all ages.
