Activities & Events 

At the Eppson Center we offer a wide variety of activities and events to enhance the quality of life for many Albany County residents. People of all ages benefit from being physically active and socially engaged in their communities. As we grow older, it is to our advantage to participate in activities that stretch our physical, social, and emotional selves. The Eppson Center has activities designed to challenge body, mind, and spirit while providing an atmosphere that encourages growth and development. ​Check out the calendar for a full list of activities.

Sound Bath Meditation

Friday, July 26th

2:00pm

Wellness Center

Calm your body and settle your mind as you are bathed in the sounds of the Tibetan singing bowls, Koshi chimes, crystal quartz bowls and more. What is a Sound Bath?

During a sound bath, participants relax in a comfortable position and simply listen and stay present with the sounds and vibrations that they are experiencing. Generally, a deep state of relaxation of the body and peace of mind is cultivated, with a greater sense of overall well being and health.

Space is limited - see Angie to reserve your spot!
