WHEN ELDERS MEDITATE

When Elders Meditate is a  free wellness program for senior citizens. Every other week, Fimo Mitchell guides participants through a meditation session that is followed by a time of sharing. A specialized yoga instructor is always on hand to offer 20 minutes of chair yoga after the meditation circle. When Elders Meditate aims to support the social participation and inclusion of seniors while fortifying their mental and physical health.  If you're a senior citizen  please click here to join the sessions on Zoom. The next gathering will be on Thursday May 19 at 10 am. 

When Elders Meditate is funded by The New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP).

Meditation has many physical and psychological benefits for older adults, including better focus, enhanced calmness, less stress, and improved sleep. Research shows that meditation can reduce depression and pain as well as boost emotional well-being.
Meditation can also help adults come to terms with the challenges of aging. It is associated with enhanced short and long-term memory. A recent study showed that it might even slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s.
