Holistic Life Foundation Event June 16th featuring Congressman Tim Ryan

by JT on June 4, 2012

I am honored to announce that I will be the featured artist for Holistic Life Foundation’s 11th anniversary fundraiser.  HLF has been using yoga and meditation as a way to positively influence the youth of  West Baltimore for over a decade now with proven results through studies with John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Health.  You can see what they are about on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams (via YogaDork).

 “Mindfulness-based approaches may be advantageous to urban youth by  improving their capacity to cope with persistent stress. Enhancing responses to stress and the ability to control negative feelings and troubling thoughts among at-risk youth has the potential to encourage the development of core competencies that will benefit young people in school, at home and with friends, in the community and throughout life.”

The event will take place on June 16th at Metro Gallery on 1700 North Charles Street in Baltimore.  A great time to be had with music, food, and drinks all evening along with a special keynote speaker, Congressman Tim Ryan, author of A Mindful Nation.  Twenty five percent of all artwork sold will help benefit HLF.  Click here to purchase tickets.
