Drop-in Mindfulness Meditation Sessions Spring 2020
Take a brief time out during a stressful day to enjoy the benefits of meditation. Students who meditate report less anxiety, reduced stress, improved focus, and better health overall. Plus, meditation is typically enhanced in a group setting. Drop-ins encouraged, no commitment needed, no prior experience necessary.

- During Week 2 grounding skills will equip you with how to re- focus on the present moment to take a break from you thoughts and/or worries.
- During Week 3 you will practice progressive muscle relaxation and mindful breathing to learn new skills aimed at releasing tension that may be felt in the body during stressful responses.
