Meditation Expert to Present Free Series at FVCC

Marc Nevas, founder and Executive Director of Kalispell’s Ananda Seva Montana, formerly the Ananda Seva Yoga Center, will present a free meditation series for FVCC students and employees and the community at Flathead Valley Community College beginning September 27.

Nevas will provide information and instruction on meditation techniques and how the ancient practice can help improve people’s abilities to focus and concentrate, to reduce stress and to achieve a deeper connection with themselves and their peers.

Nevas began his meditation practices in 1971 and has traveled to India extensively for advanced instruction and training in meditation and Eastern philosophy.  He has received over 1,000 hours of formal training to become a yogic minister, or “Acharya,” through the Ananda Seva Acharya Training Program.  Nevas is a founding member of Ananda Seva Mission Inc., an international meditation and service organization, and has served on its board since 1996.

Open to the public, the series will take place September 27, October 11, November 22 and December 6 at 6 p.m. in room 144 inside the Arts and Technology Building on the college’s Kalispell campus.
