Fall is the perfect time for rejuvenation and relaxation, after a busy summer and before the winter calm sets in. Elliott Dacher, MD, begins the fall session of his course on meditation on Wednesday, Oct. 1, at the medical staff library at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital from 6 to 8:15 p.m. The series will run for eight weeks and is co-sponsored by the hospital and the YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard.

Preregistration is required and tuition for the series is $150; $130 for YMCA members and $75 for hospital employees.
