Winter Quarter Mindfulness Meditation Offerings at Hall Health

Mindfulness Meditation for Beginners
Mindfulness meditation is a practice that involves cultivating attention to the present moment in a nonjudgmental manner. The benefits of mindfulness meditation have been widely studied and include alleviating symptoms of depression and anxiety, increasing capacity for attention and concentration, improving self-esteem, and enhancing resilience to stress. This group offered at Hall Health will introduce key concepts and provide instruction in the practice of mindfulness meditation. No prior knowledge or experience is required. Participants will be provided with materials, instruction and support for building and sustaining a meditation practice.

Winter quarter sections:
Tuesdays 9:30-11am, January 26th – March 15th
