Reducing Stress the Zen Way
Mondays - February 1, 8, 22 and 29 at 7:30
In this day and age, who isn't stressed, tense, and anxious about things
that were or things that will be? In this introductory class to Zen meditation,
longtime Zen teacher, and Haworth resident, Wally Koopalethes, will lead
a group through beginning meditation techniques that, with practice, may
help to relieve stress and tension in their lives. By learning laser-sharp focus
on breathing techniques and posture, the idea is that peace of mind and mental
clarity will follow.
The class will discuss some of the basic principles of Zen, in addition to
meditation techniques. Wally Koopalethes is a Zen teacher with over 35 years of
experience and has taught classes throughout northern New Jersey. She studied
at the Zen Mountain Monastery in Mt. Tremper, New York, and at Zen Garland in Wyckoff.
The classes will be held in the Community Room at the Haworth Library. You do not
need any previous experience with meditation to attend this class. For more information,
call the library at 201-384-1020.

IMPORTANT TAX INFORMATION
Many of our patrons have questioned why there is a line item for the library on their current tax bill. I want to assure you there is no additional tax revenue levied for the library. The New Jersey State Government has made it a state law requiring each town to separate the amount of money that the town pays toward the library from the municipal portion of the bill. This is not an additional tax, but what homeowners have been paying yearly.
