In 2014, Jacksonville’s Daily News wrote an article about Greg Matos, a clinical psychologist who began a weekly mediation group at Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune’s Chapel. Though Matos is a practicing Buddhist, meditation can be useful to anyone, and you need not be a Buddhist or any particular religious denomination to enjoy the benefits.
As far as we know, this is the only location in Jacksonville or Camp Lejeune for public mindfulness. So kudos to Matos for starting this group on base. There is a meditation service every Thursday, 11 AM at the Naval Hospital Chapel. Call 910-450-4070 for more information.
If, however, Matos’ group doesn’t work for you, there are four options for meditation in nearby Wilmington.
