Meditate @ 8, a new group meditation experience provided by the Brahma Kumaris, is bringing short meditations to you via your phone.

Raja Yoga is an ancient system of meditation and spiritual understanding that enables you to stabilize the mind, reduce stress, release tension and pain, and enhance well-being. Experience this practical and natural form of meditation via phone while sitting in the comfort of your own home, Sunday to Thursday, 8 p.m. Come on a few minutes early to relax and get comfortable while listening to soft meditation music.

The Brahma Kumaris of Hollywood have been providing the community with free meditations at four Broward libraries (Hollywood, Dania Beach, Carver Ranches and Hallandale) and at downtown Hollywood’s Young Circle ArtsPark for many years, and have now added this “takeout” service.

Simply call 712-775-7031 (free if you have unlimited long-distance calling) and key in the Meeting ID: 660 469 256 #, then enter * 6 to mute—then chill out to experience a peaceful evening and a restful sleep.
