Mindfulness Meditation Classes

Join us for a mindfulness meditation class! Recent neurological research studies have shown that people who practice mindfulness meditation can experience benefits such as lowered stress levels, enhanced working memory, cognitive flexibility, increased attention/focus, and greater empathy, and is a predictor of relationship satisfaction.  In this 45-minute workshop, Spiritual Care Services chaplains will lead you through a brief introduction to the research findings, followed by sitting meditation, focused breathing, and metta (loving-kindness) meditation.
