@ Wesleyan

A mindfulness community for Wesleyan.

Meditation and Mingling:

Lunchtime Sit with Rabbi David: Please join us on Thursdays from 12:30-1pm in the Meditation Room on the bottom floor of the Memorial Chapel for some contemplative quiet and mindfulness. We typically do two 10-15 minute sittings: 12:30-12:45 and 12:45-1. Come to one or both sessions! All levels and backgrounds welcome.

Every Wednesday at 7:15pm
, Tyla Taylor, the Mindfulness Intern, will lead meditation in the ORSL Lounge (169 High Street). Everyone is welcome whether they have been meditating their whole life, have always wanted to try, are just curious, or anything in between. Each week we’ll go through a few aspects/techniques of meditation and try different meditation practices. Sittings will range from 5-15 minutes. Questions are encouraged! This community is for current Wesleyan students.

Contact us for more information.  All are welcome.
