Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation

Tai Chi

Ages 18 & Up: Cultivate a greater awareness of the unity of mind and body. Mindfulness meditation helps practitioners stop worrying about forces not under their control, using mindfulness techniques including a full-body scan, seated meditation, walking meditation and eating meditation. No prior meditation experience is needed to enroll in this class. For more information contact Jerry at 301-540-8091 or mongo2@usa.net.

Tai Chi - Beginning

1 Session $46 Instructor: Jerry Hartman 59443 Potomac CRC 1/26 Sa 10:00am-2:00pm

Mindfulness of the Body Ages 18 & Up: Of the four foundations of mindfulness, the first and most important is mindfulness of the body. As infants, we learn unconsciously to interpret everything that happens in our lives as pleasant or unpleasant based on how we experience it through the five senses in our body. And yet, as we grow, most of us forget this and live our lives from the neck up. Join us for a half day of meditation, short talks, and group discussions which will increase your awareness of the body and its relationship to the mind. No prior meditation experience is needed to enroll in this class. For more information contact Jerry at 301-540-8091 or email at mongo2@usa.net.

Using Mindfulness to Increase Happiness

Building Strength & Healthy Prostate

Ages 18 & Up: For most of us, happiness is dependent on outside conditions. We suffer from the “if only” disease and never have enough to be satisfied. Possessions, jobs or relationships - we’re always looking for the next big thing that will finally make us happy. Eventually we realize that approach doesn’t work. Mindfulness meditation gives us tools to create a lasting happiness that doesn’t rely on others. We’ll explore how clinging to our attitudes and possessions create dissatisfaction, and how love, kindness, generosity and gratitude can help change your outlook on life.

Follow in his footsteps... Help lead the path to the new Josiah Henson Park Museum and Education Center with a Commemorative Paver! Each paver will be prominently displayed within a beautiful pathway leading visitors from the parking lot to the historic site of Riley Plantation, where Josiah Henson was enslaved. You can support Father Henson along the “Footsteps to Freedom” trail as he journeys from bondage in Montgomery County to his harrowing flight to freedom in Canada to becoming the inspiration behind the landmark novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. You too, can leave a lasting legacy for future generations to come.

Josiah Henson deserves to have his story told…

4” x 8” $250 8” x 8” $500

*Donation options including installment and pledge opportunities can be found on our website. You may also call Raleigh Polsky Leichter at (301) 495-2567 for more information.

Prerequisite: Families are required to complete a participant support questionnaire for the ACEing Autism organization. This information will help our coaches and volunteers be better prepared to help your child succeed. This unique curriculum aims to develop coordination, confidence, and social skills through on-court activities that emphasize taking turns, working in teams, and following instruction. Class is led by our trained instructors and every participant is paired with a volunteer. A clear and consistent weekly routine helps participants gain comfort and familiarity with tennis fundamentals. All tennis equipment is provided. While parents/caregivers are not expected to participate with their child, we do ask them to be responsible for assisting with any self-care if necessary during the program hour.
