PARAMUS, N.J., April 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Life as we used to know it bears little resemblance to what we are experiencing today as the coronavirus pandemic upends everything from work to child care to celebrations, death and human contact. To counteract the negativity coming at us at warp speed — whether we listen to the news or not — the world needs more positive thoughts and healing vibrations and that is exactly what Mary B. Battaglia is sending out with her twice-daily Zoom sessions. "I'm using Zoom to conquer feelings of doom, you might say," Battaglia observes.
Battaglia, a Paramus-based clinical hypnosis and sound practitioner, is conducting free Zoom sessions for anyone interested at 7:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Eastern. The morning meditation session lasts for 15 minutes while the evening sound session is a half-hour. Both sessions focus on clearing the mind and the evening sessions adds sound to relax and connect to peace within. Each session ends with sending out positive thoughts of healing, calm and gratitude.
Battaglia lives in New Jersey's hardest-hit area with the coronavirus and felt the call to help others. "I wanted to create a community of free programs to help people reduce stress, create a daily routine and have a place to go to feel good. When you can connect to the inner peace within yourself you can get through the tough times easier. The meditation connects people throughout the world including Europe and the United States. It reinforces that we are all in this together. People share what their quarantine is like, where to get groceries and what helps them stay calm," she says.
