Peace Tree Innovations Society in collaboration with Burnaby Public Library presents this meditation workshop.

We all know how physical exercise is at the core of our wellbeing.  We take our body to a Gym.  What about taking your Brain to the Gym?  Did you know that Chronic Stress changes your brain structure and affects your physical and emotional wellbeing.  Meditation is a self-empowerment tool that helps you take the brain to the gym and cleanse it from stress and other mental and emotional toxins that accumulate in our fast paced lifestyles.

In these sessions Master Sunita will present simple tools of self compassion healing meditation to exercise your brain and relax and rejuvenate for peak performance in all aspects of life.  A few minutes of these scientifically tested practices can not only increase your immunity to stress, but also boost your immune system along with other health benefits.  Suman Kollipara, her student will also share with you the science of stress and the neuroscience and health benefits of meditation. 

Master Sunita Bapooji is the pioneer of SOOKSHMA - self compassion healing meditation program, with around 40 years of global impact.  Peace Tree Innovations Society is non-profit that organizes workshops, lectures and seminars on overall well-being using tools of self compassion healing meditation. 

Free but space is limited.  Register online, by calling 604-299-8955, or in person at the library.

Thrifty Tuesdays helps your money go further!

Burnaby Public Library and the Credit Counselling Society want to help you consider any expenses that can arise with your new bundle of joy!

Welcoming a new family member is one of the biggest life changes you will experience and it certainly adds new dynamics to your household expenses - even before your child arrives! Wether you're adopting or giving birth, there are going to be financial considerations you need to start thinking about to prepare for your child.

Planning for a new child requires changes to your budget and it's never too late to start. In the "Planning for Your New Arrival" workshop you will learn:

  • The basics of the Canadian maternity and parental benefit system
  • How to budget for each stage of your leave period; before, during and after
  • Things you will need to invest in prior to your child's arrival
  • Strategies to save for big ticket items
  • Where to find resources and savings

All participants will walk away from the workshop with a better understanding of the financial changes that will occur with a new addition to the family as well as tips and tricks to navigate this new stage of life! Full curriculum is available upon request.

The Credit Counselling Society also offers webinars on various topics.

Seating is limited and registration is required for this FREE program. For more information or to register, please call: 604-522-3971, visit in-person, or register online.
