Meditation for Everyday Life

Instructor: Lisa Stanley

Meditation practices support us in feeling more present and relaxed by harmonizing body and mind. In turn, this helps us recognize and work with patterns of stress and overwhelm, as well as physical and emotional challenges. Using an approach of gentleness and strength we’ll explore various techniques that relate with the breath, thoughts, and sense perceptions.  We’ll engage with sitting, walking, standing and supine postures.  This class includes some outdoor practice sessions, allowing us to tap into the beauty and calm of nature areas around campus. We’ll discuss and reflect on how these mindfulness practices blend into one’s daily life.
