SPRING AWAKENING SOUND MEDITATION AT THE WESTFIELD AREA YMCA @ Westfield Area Y
Mar 29 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
SPRING AWAKENING SOUND MEDITATION AT THE WESTFIELD AREA YMCA @ Westfield Area Y

Release the weight of winter by participating in a Spring Awakening Sound Meditation at the Westfield Area YMCA, located at 220 Clark St, on Sunday, March 29 from 4:00 – 5:30 pm. Participate in asana and rejuvenating sound meditation created by Tibetan singing. Leading the session will be certified Sound Healing and Meditation guide, Brenda Castano.

Sound Bowl Meditation is a calming practice that helps you connect with a sense of profound peace. It is also known to help balance chakra energy, improve sleep quality, alleviate stress and anxiety and increase productivity. Singing bowls are frequently used during yoga practice to enhance the connection to asanas or meditation by synchronizing brainwaves to breath and movement flow to reduce physical and emotional tension.

Yoga mats will be provided. No prior experience is necessary for this gentle practice. Dress should be comfortable.  Advance registration is strongly encouraged. Register online at westfieldynj.org or in person at the Welcome Center. A contribution of $25 will benefit the Y’s Annual Support Campaign which ensures that no one who is experiencing a bona fide financial hardship and lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside is turned away for inability to pay for Y programs or memberships.  The majority of awards enable participation in the Y’s early learning; school age and summer day camp programs. For more information, contact Jean White, Health and Wellness Director, at 908-233-2700 x246

Sleep Out for Homeless Kids @ Calvary Tabernacle
May 8 @ 8:00 pm
Sleep Out for Homeless Kids @ Calvary Tabernacle | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

What is a Sleep Out?
Sleep Outs are events that help Covenant House raise awareness about the problem of youth homelessness while raising critical funds needed to continue caring for the more than 3,000 homeless kids that come to Covenant House New Jersey (CHNJ) each year in crisis.

By sleeping out with us, you are standing with us and our kids ensuring that we can continue to care for New Jersey’s homeless youth. Your fundraising efforts have a direct effect on the services that we provide.

Our work at CHNJ is funded primarily through private donations, enabling us to provide the best care possible. The more money we raise the more kids we can care for and the better the services we can provide to them.

We ask Sleep Out participants to raise critical funds that allow Covenant House New Jersey to offer safety, shelter, and support to homeless young people 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. By fundraising, Sleep Out participants become part of the solution for homeless teenagers.
