The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted life as we know it.

People now have to wear face masks indoors, social distance six feet apart from their loved ones and miss out on birthdays and other celebrations.

Some people have lost their jobs, been furloughed or are overworked with long hours.

So, for those seeking peace of mind, this event might provide some much-needed relief.

The James City County Parks and Recreation department is hosting a free meditation event Wednesday.

The event is open to the public ages 16 and older. You can register here.

“During these sometimes stressful times, meditation can help improve physical, emotional and mental health,” according to a James City County Parks and Recreation Facebook page.

Attendees will learn different tools to relax and reflect while learning the “contemplative process” of mediation.

“You’ll be guided in and out of each session,” according to the county’s parks and recreation website. “Meditation can improve your physical, emotional and mental health and well-being.”

The Techniques of Meditation is at the James City County Recreation Center, 5301 Longhill Road, on Nov. 4 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

For more information or to register, call 757-259-4200 or sign up for the class online here.
