A mindfulness community for Wesleyan.
Meditation and Mingling:
New Tuesday Group Starting! As of September 2016, please join us 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. No experience necessary. All levels and backgrounds welcome.
Every Monday at 7pm, Kate Gilbert, the Mindfulness Intern for the year, will lead meditation in the chapel meditation room followed by brownies in the Zelnick Pavilion or outside. 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.
BPN: Being Present Now
Mindfulness Class at Wesleyan
A 6-week course for 6 Mondays, 4:30-6:30 pm, beginning on September 4, 2017.*
During this non-credit course, students will be introduced to various techniques of mindfulness practice and spiritual awareness, including sitting meditation and yoga. These modalities are designed to aid in stress and anxiety reduction, and when practiced diligently, may also offer opportunities for greater self-awareness and personal development. The goal is to give students a spiritual toolbox that is portable, replicable, and sustainable. Students will gain an understanding of the roles these practices can play in leading a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.
The class will be taught by:
Amy Tate, PHD
Scott Kessel, Wesleyan ’87 MALS ’92
David Leipziger Teva, Director – Office of Religious and Spiritual Life
*After applying, please attend the mandatory sampler class (location TBA) . Please wear comfortable loose fitting clothing and bring a yoga mat if you have one.
For more information, please contact David Lepiziger Teva (firstname.lastname@example.org).
