Meditation programs can help you better manage stress and lead a healthier life.
Meditation can reduce stress, improve sleep, and help focus the mind. Attending a meditation group can reinforce your desire to practice meditation daily and help you to expand your skills. It also can connect you with other students who are interested in mindfulness practices. All experience levels are welcome. This group is offered weekly. Come early if you are new to meditation or want one-on-one assistance with your practice. Drop-in when you can.
Students who practice mindfulness and meditation are less-stressed, sleep better, and have more self-compassion. During our 4-session course students learn the fundamentals of mindfulness and different techniques, such as belly breathing, body scan, guided imagery and labeling thoughts, to practice mindfulness every day. During class check-in time, students also get support regarding their personal meditation practice.
The 4-hour silent Mindfulness Retreat each semester provides meditation instruction, yoga and quiet time to breathe before Final Exams.
Choose from the four-session course, a four-hour retreat day program or both.
