WISCONSIN RAPIDS — Do you find yourself pulled in many directions? Does your mind spin sometimes from the thoughts running around in it? Would you like to learn to relax?
Ila Jean Babcock will talk about meditation and progression relaxation techniques at the next session of Let’s Learn Together, a public speaker series in Wisconsin Rapids. Babcock has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years and teaching it for 10 years.
“I became interested in meditation through my yoga practice,” said Babcock. “Many people think that meditate you must still the mind and remove all thoughts. This type of meditation is only one aspect of the practice,”
In addition to talking about meditation, Babcock will share progressive relaxation techniques with the group for the last part of her presentation.
“Meditation is really just a deeply listening to what is going on in your mind and body, and there are many different ways/styles of doing that,” said Babcock. “Come join me, and let me help you find a meditative practice that suits you — anyone can do it.”
Babcock will speak at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, April 13 at Hilltop Grand Village, 1400 24th St. S. (Enter by Home Depot.) Her presentation is free and open to the public. It is part of a monthly series of speakers on a variety of topics. Refreshments are served.
