Reducing Stress Through Meditation

Thursday October 20 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The scientific community has recently been exploring the use of meditation as a healing modality. Join John Bendarik as he discusses the extraordinary effect meditation has in reducing stress-related responses, improving concentration, enhancing clarity of thought and mental equilibrium. He will also present a simple, yet powerful meditation technique that can enrich one’s life personally, professionally and spiritually. There will even be a short meditation sitting.


Presenter: John M. Bednarik, OHST is a recently retired Assistant Area Director at the Long Island Area Osha Office in Westbury, NY. John is certified as an Occupational Safety & Health Technologist and is trained both in Safety & Industrial Health. He has investigated complex industrial accidents and illnesses in the workplace and has supervised a team of Federal Officers. He has a degree in Business Management, Marketing & Occupational Health. John now serves as a consultant in the field of labor law and safety. He has been practicing meditation for over 30 years and has been giving presentations on this topic for decades at numerous public libraries and other venues. In a very challenging and stress ridden occupation, John has held a lot of responsibility. He brought meditation into his life to help with his own personal stress relief and, experiencing its many benefits, now helps others to do the same. John is also an assistant director of a children’s meditation camp in Virginia. Sharing his time between Long Island and Florida, he has discovered a path to greater health, happiness, and peace.  He will introduce you to a basic meditation technique that can improve the quality of everyday life by reducing stress, improving health, and by beginning to see things with a fresh outlook.
