August Events!
Two Great Programs!

Introduction to Transcendental Meditation

Monday, August 17th at 6:00

Carol Tavares, certified teacher and Director of the South Coast Massachusetts Transcendental Meditation program, will be joining us Monday, August 17th in the Great Ponds Gallery of the Lakeville Public Library at 6:00 pm to introduce anyone who is interested to the techniques of Transcendental Meditation.

Participants in this program will learn how Transcendental Meditation enhances the mind, body, well-being, personal relationships and world harmony. It can bring you happiness, enhance your own creativity and naturally calm your mind to bring you inner coherence. She will also discuss how this ancient technique differs from other forms of meditation.

This program is FREE and open to all adults, no registration is required.
