Audubon presents the ‘Three Pillars of Meditation’

Photo submitted to Times Observer Loretta Cheney will present “The Three Pillars of Meditation” at Audubon Community Nature Center on Thursday, March 26. A K-12 certified art teacher, potter, member of the Seneca Nation of Indians, and MMI Certified Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher, Cheney is pictured demonstrating the impact meditation has on her.

After suffering with bouts of depression and anxiety, Loretta Cheney looked for an alternative solution to the therapy and medical prescriptions she had been receiving. As her attention to meditation flourished, her dependence on prescribed medication decreased.

A K-12 certified art teacher, potter, member of the Seneca Nation of Indians, and McLean Meditation Institute Certified Meditation & Mindfulness Teacher, Cheney is now drug free, with increased self-confidence, lowered instances of anxiety and depression and a more pronounced ability in focus, memory and organizational skills.

On Thursday, March 26, from 5 to 6 p.m., Cheney will share The Three Pillars of Meditation at Audubon Community Nature Center. She will introduce the three ways meditation trains your awareness, the three requirements needed to meditate, and the five essentials for a successful experience.

This class is a great opportunity if you are investigating healthy ways to deal with the stress in your life. Everyone is welcome.

Participants are asked to bring a warm blanket if they have one.

The program is for those 16 and older. Fee is $16, $12 for Nature Center members.

Space is limited. Paid reservations are required by Tuesday, March 24, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org/Programs and clicking on “Current Schedule.”
