Description

We are living in a time that feels often confusing and stressful. Incorporating meditation in our lives can be the change that can make a big difference. Join Dr. Matthew Raider, physician and longtime meditator as he teaches a simple meditation technique to increase personal well-being. There will even be a short meditation sitting.

Dr. Raider graduated from the University of Michigan Medical School with honors in 1979. He maintains a clinical practice in geriatric medicine. He held a faculty position at the University of Connecticut Medical School and has coordinated the geriatrics curriculum for the Middlesex Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program for over 30 years. He is currently the medical director of four Connecticut health care facilities.

As a physician and long-time meditator, Dr. Raider has a strong interest in meditation and its relationship to health and disease prevention/treatment. He has lectured extensively on the subject in hospitals and other venues in the United States and Canada and recently he spoke at the United Nations. He is also a contributing author to “Meditation as Medication for the Soul” by Rajinder Singh.
