RVCC Planetarium to Host Meditation Programs

The Planetarium at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) in Branchburg will offer multiple presentations of its “Meditation under the Stars” program in May. The program will be presented Friday, May 1, 7 p.m.; Friday, May 8, 1:15 p.m.; and Wednesday, May 20, 1:15 p.m. Each session runs about one-and-a-half hours. Led by relaxation specialist Barbara Cannell, the program is held in the serene environment of the RVCC Planetarium. Participants learn to release tension and stress during a guided meditation as the Planetarium’s digital dome overhead transforms into a “flight” through the Universe. Admission to each session is $7 per person. The program is appropriate for teens and adults. For additional information and reservations, call 908-231-8805. In 2015, the Planetarium at RVCC is celebrating 25 years of bringing astronomy to the children and adults of New Jersey.
