Quieting the Mind Meditation Sessions Resume
How often do you feel overwhelmed, or like you are spinning your wheels? In mindfulness meditation we strive to take time out from the constant doing of our outer world and the constant thinking of our inner world and to create a space where we can practice simply being. Like a still lake that perfectly reflects everything within and around it, a quiet mind reduces unnecessary anxiety, enhances learning and teaching, and enables us to be more present to ourselves and others. Offered Thursdays, 12-1 p.m., CL130. Open to all.
