Mindfulness Meditation

Learn to slow down from the busy pace of University...and life!

Mindfulness is about being present and in the moment.  This free, drop-in class fosters an accepting, non-judgmental environment to learn and practice different forms of mindful meditation.

No prior experience with mindfulness or meditation is required -- everyone is welcome.
There is no registration or commitment. Just show up as you are and be guided through a different mindfulness exercise each week.
