“The Benefits of Meditation” as demonstrated by Mary Fahey

Before the raffle and after the tea and Club biscuits; after the jokes from Daniel and his match-stick trick with his accomplice, I mean, lovely assistant, Jeanette;  after the to-do about believing in a god and reminiscing about The Holy Land trip and after Sara arrived in her red sequined beret then along came Mary Fahey and sent us into states of deep relaxation. Eric fell asleep.

Our Mary is professional and wise. She introduced herself and we were off, breathing and sighing, sitting still and peaceful concentrating on pink energy balls and inward breaths . Everyone experienced the goodness.
