Meditation and acupuncture have the healing capacity to work on the physical, mental and emotional levels – but in combination, the benefits can be even more restorative and energizing. This interactive workshop experience will demystify each with a blend of history and science. Participants will receive light acupuncture in the ears delivered by a licensed acupuncturist before experiencing a guided meditation by a meditation teacher specializing in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). Individual aromatherapy will also be offered as a part of the experience. Beginners are welcome.
