Meditate for the Food Bank

Individuals who meditate regularly experience improvement in cognitive processing, stress management, energy and libido

Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 18, Lucas Stiefvater – owner/operator of Ocean Resort, Vancouver Island’s Wellness Centre and Spa will offer an evening of meditation for men only.

Stiefvater began a regular meditation practice after a visit to India in 2004.

“It wasn’t something I was looking for, but once I discovered meditation I was hooked,” says Stiefvater.  “I now experience an all encompassing sense of well-being that has a direct impact on my emotional and physical health, as well as my relationships with people. I am a very content man because of meditation.”

Science supports Stiefvater’s experience. There is significant research that shows individuals who meditate regularly experience improvement in cognitive processing, stress management, energy and libido, beneficial cardiovascular effects and an overall improvement in quality of life.

For five consecutive Wednesdays beginning September 18, Stiefvater will offer a combination of guided and self-directed meditation to support the creation of an ongoing practice, tailored to the unique needs of men.

The one-hour meditation begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by questions and discussion. No pre-registration is required and you can drop-in for one or all five of the evenings.

Regular Tuesday night drop-in meditation continues as usual. Both evenings are available by donation with all proceeds going to the Food Bank.
