Peace Gathering & Metta Meditation
This is a FREE gathering and ALL are welcome!
Thursday, Aug. 24th @ 7:30pm { REGISTER }
at Revolution Community Yoga in the RCY Loft

Join RCY Teachers Paula Demeo & Gwen Murphy as they guide our community in a Metta Meditation. Metta bhavana, or loving-kindness meditation, is a method from the Buddhist tradition of developing compassion, peace and love. This practice – which will not include any physical yoga elements – can be adapted and practiced by anyone, regardless of religious affiliation. NO MEDITATION OR YOGA EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY – just show up with an open heart and mind.

Paul DemeoPaula Demeo
Paula earned her 200 Hour YT Certification at Kripalu, is a 300 hour certified YogaKids teacher, and is Reiki I certified. She is a very experienced preschool educator, having worked in the field of early childhood education for over 25 years. Paula is EEC certified to teach preschool in Massachusetts, as well as CPR and First Aid trained. Currently teaching children’s yoga locally to children age 3-12, it has been exciting for Paula to combine two of her favorite things, working with children and yoga. She brings compassion, playful energy, music, games and props, and a love for life to each of her classes. She is hopeful to teach peace and inspire those she meets to go out in to the world, and make a difference in someone’s life.

Gwen Murphy 
Gwen has spent much of her adult life making sculpture and, with her husband, Peter, raising their two children, who are now adults themselves. She began practicing Yoga about ten years ago, and as that practice brought more and more benefits – peace of mind, comfort in the body, better sleep, relief from various ailments, & the releasing of destructive habits – she became committed to sharing it with others. She completed her 200 Hour Teacher Certification at Frog Pond Yoga Center in Princeton, Ma. With an emphasis on alignment and movement with breath, her classes center on the fundamentals of Classical Yoga, while allowing each participant to move at his or her own pace.
