30 Minute Drop-In Guided Meditation Sessions
Mindfulness Meditation sessions will be held on Tuesdays at 11:30 AM in the Spiritual Center during the fall and spring semesters. These sessions include some mindful movement as well as 10-15 minutes of guided meditation and closing reflections, if any. Through the practice of mindfulness meditation on an ongoing basis one is able to access greater wisdom and compassion.
The Center offers the following workshops to departments student organizations, classes and other groups on and off campus.
- Mindfulness and Stress Reduction includes an overview of mindfulness, a discussion of stress perception and response, how the brain works as it relates to stress, how relaxation techniques differ from mindfulness meditation, the practice of a meditation on the breathe, and an overview of some of the many benefits of mindfulness.
- Mindful Communication includes an overview of mindfulness, exploring obstacles to healthy communications, discussing behaviors that facilitate constructive listening and conversation and the notion of the “wise mind.”
- Self-Compassion and Mindfulness includes a brief overview of mindfulness, discussion of compassion and then self-compassion. Participants explores how self-compassion differs from self-esteem and self-care and are introduced to a system for fostering self-compassion through a guided meditation.
These workshops can be tailored to meet the particular needs of different groups. For further information on Center programs and resources e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
