The Deltaville Branch will host a program on Ayurvedic Healing on Saturday, March 14 at 2:00 p.m. The speaker for this program will be Maury Cooke, a remarkable man of many talents. He has worked in the nonprofit world of affordable housing, youth and microlending and has been a bank president. In 1993 he was honored with the "First Citizen Award" for the City of Portsmouth. Maury has meditated for over 35 years and has received instruction from Zen, Tibetan Buddhist, Hindu and Christian teachers. He uses Asanas, meditation, Pranayama, and Ayurveda for healing Body, Mind, and Spirit.
In his program Maury will be offering Ayurvedic healing tips for anxiety, reduction of high blood pressure, stress management, weight and sleep problems. Maury will explain the profound value of learning to breath properly and the importance of digestion. "Let's learn to build our digestive system to lose weight, give up our addictions, and be more fulfilled," says Maury.
This should be a very interesting program.
