Mark Van Buren, a yoga, meditation and mindful-living trainer, leads a meditation retreat, in partnership with Graf Center for Integrative Medicine at Englewood Health, at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades on Sunday, April 28, from 12:30 to 5 p.m. The guided silent retreat teaches how to incorporate meditation into a daily routine, including sitting, walking, journaling, meditative dance, and lying quietly on the floor. He will also share the core teachings of this relaxing practice and how to attain restorative results.
“Meditation provides a way to find deep inner peace, mindfulness, and calm,” Mr. Van Buren said. “It also helps people develop concentration, clarity, and a sense of emotional positivity — something we can all benefit from.”
