Mindfulness is the practice of intentionally bringing one’s attention to the present moment with an open, non-judgemental, accepting, and friendly awareness.
As you start the fall term, you may notice that your mind is preoccupied with the transition, stressors, and distractions.
Join the Zen Dens for 30-minute mindfulness drop-in sessions to start the term with greater intention, carve out space for relaxation, and even establish your own regular meditation practice.
Each session will involve a theme, a guided meditation, and an opportunity to share your experience. No experience required!
