Meditation in Summit County
With the Summit Interfaith Council
The Interfaith Council is sponsoring twice monthly non-religious meditation sits at Thrive Yoga. Lets come together for shared meditation among different faiths and spiritual practices; it can build bonds and promote dialogue among people of different traditions. In addition, shared practices can be a way to educate ourselves and broaden our understanding of other spiritually based organizations. All of these things can benefit not only individuals involved, but the whole community. Rebecca Warshawsky of SOS, along with Diane Ryan and Pat McShane will alternate the meditations.

Meet the Facilitators
Meditation has been a focal point in my life for many years. I was trained in a Jewish spiritual meditation while living in Austin, TX. At the Heart Hospital in Austin, TX I took courses in meditation practices for health benefits utilizing Jon Kabat-Zinn’s approach of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). In addition, meditation practice was an essential part of the 200 hour yoga teacher training I completed at Meta Yoga studios 3 years ago. Through meditation, I personally find an inner stillness and peace that helps me navigate the world. That is what I try to share in leading meditation.
