A four-week “Meditation for Men” program begins Jan. 29 in Courtenay. Stock inage

Meditation for Men returns to the Comox Valley

Back by popular demand, Lucas Stiefvater is offering mindfulness meditation for men. Join him, beginning Jan. 29, for four Wednesdays, 5:30-6:30 p.m. for an exploration into the practice of meditation.

In this unique, male-only environment, Stiefvater guides participants in informative conversation and guided meditation practices.

After several years as a successful local entrepreneur, Stiefvater discovered the power of meditation and experienced the benefits. He is committed to sharing this practice with others, so that they too might experience the contentment he now knows.

There is science to back up Stiefvater’s experience. A mindfulness practice changes the way the brain functions. In fact, it changes brain chemistry and increases actual gray matter. Mindfulness meditation is literally exercise for the brain.

It is a way of hardwiring the brain for happiness, contentment and an increased ability to function at our best in the world.

A regular mindfulness practice offers significant benefits for everyone, but particularly those suffering from anxiety, depression, age-related brain impairments and head trauma.

Here in the Comox Valley, we have also access to a weekly drop-in meditation guided by Stiefvater for all levels, every Wednesday evening from 7-8 p.m. Everyone welcome.

Both meditation sessions are held at the Tibetan Centre 407A – 5th St., Courtenay (corner of England and 4th Street).

Admission is by monetary donation to the food bank and the Tibetan Society. For more information or to register, contact Stiefvater at 250-792-3165.
