Introduction to Mind/Body Meditation at Earle Baum Center (online)


Apr 15

Meditation truly is a way to nurture oneself. It provides a sacred time to pause, destress and realign oneself with one’s true inner dialogue. There is no wrong or right way to meditate and it is very simple! Meditation stimulates the brains parasympathetic nervous system, the “rest and reset” system in our body. In pausing together we can find abundance in our stillness, and relaxation in the permission to let go.

Meditation class at EBC is presented by Patricia Jefferson, Vision Rehabilitation Instructor, who has a lifelong passion for meditation along with emerging meditation coach, Mini Sage.

Vision, Peer-led Support Group (online)

Vision, Peer-led Support Group (online)


Apr 15

Vision is a peer-led drop-in support group that runs on a 12-week cycle of topics based on Hannah Fairbairn’s 2019 book, “When You Can't Believe Your Eyes: Vision Loss and Personal Recovery”. Every first and third Monday of the month, we meet to discuss different topics and share our experiences, thoughts, and knowledge. We are people with similar experiences who genuinely want to support one another in all aspects of living independently with our changing vision. Each week the topics are independent, so you can join the group at any week. Reading is not required. However, if you would like topic details beyond our discussions, please refer to the book which is available on BARD (DBC11619).

April 1 Chapter 2 delves into the challenges individuals face upon returning home after experiencing sudden or gradual sight loss, particularly focusing on financial, employment, and housing aspects.

April 15: Chapter 3 explores the journey of rebuilding self-trust after experiencing sight loss, touching on the dislocation of identity, challenges in perception, and the importance of personal agency.
