Meditation and mindfulness can relieve stress, improve focus and more. We offer programs to help you cultivate this practice in your daily life.

Learning to be Mindful

Meditation is the practice of intentionally focusing on something (frequently a word or phrase, sounds, or your own breath) to increase awareness of the present moment. Mindfulness strategies allow students to access present moment experiences to assist them to better cope with stress, improve sleep and manage their emotions during tumultuous times. Health Promotion offers a variety of programs to help you incorporate mindfulness in your daily life. No experience or equipment necessary, everyone is welcome.
