Treat your mind, body and spirit with Zen course

Seniors Scene with Sylvia Yee

It’s not too late to register for Zen Meditation.

The practice of Chinese Zen encourages clarity of mind, compassion to all beings and a wisdom that comes from going beyond the concerns of self. Sessions include gentle exercise and an introduction to meditation for those seeking to understand the mind-body-spirit connections.

The beginner course starts July 9 at the White Rock Community Centre and runs Saturday afternoons from 1:30-4 p.m. Call 604-541-2231 to pre-register.

There are still a few spaces in the Designer Flower Arrangement workshop on July 13 at 7 p.m. at the White Rock Community Centre.

Learn how to make beautiful, trendy, up-style table arrangements like on the coffee table of the Ellen Show. Call ahead to register.

Please note that Tea with the Stars/Hairspray is on Wednesday, July 13 (not Thursday as previously published).

The time is 1:30 p.m. at the White Rock Community Centre.

The Nordic Stride walking group is continuing through the summer months.

The club is for those who have taken the Nordic Walking program and are ready to explore our community parks. Call 604-541-2199 for information.
