BELFAST — In celebration of heart health month, two sound healing meditation events are offered by Diana Maria Chapin and Lori LeBlanc at the Belfast Free Library, 106 High St. On Thursday, Feb. 27, participants are welcome to attend one of two sessions: 10 to 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 to 2 p.m. These are free community events; donations accepted.

Participants will learn about the healing art of the singing bowls and Yoga Nidra meditation, and explore the human energy system. There will be an opportunity to practice heart-brain coherence breath-work, which has been shown scientifically to produce a foundational state of well-being.

Yoga Nidra, also called “divine sleep,” is the art of holding oneself in the state of awareness between fully awake and fully asleep. Specifically, the body is in deep rest while the mind is aware. As a state of being, Yoga Nidra is used to experience and promote relaxation, reduce stress and improve wellness; and has been shown to reduce anxiety, depression and PTSD. Yoga Nidra is a naturally easy meditation for beginners, and is practiced lying supine or sitting in a chair.

Participants should bring their own pillows, blankets and yoga mat items that will help them feel comfortable lying on the floor.

Diana Maria Chapin is an energy healer, Reiki master teacher, and meditation instructor at Maine Integrative Wellness Center, 8 Jesse Robbins Road, Suite D, Belfast. Learn more at
