Morning Meditation

What: Regular meditation practice has been shown to provide a myriad of benefits including lower stress, better focus and increased energy.  Health and Counseling Services would like to encourage the development of a regular practice of meditation for all students, staff and faculty by providing a space and a regular time for twice weekly morning meditation sessions.  Most people find that meditating in an environment with others provides a more powerful experience.  These sessions will be silent which will permit you to bring your own practice of meditation.

When: Tuesday and Friday mornings – 8:10 to 8:25 AM beginning on Tuesday, August 15, 2017.  Meditation will start promptly with a chime at 8:10 AM and end promptly at 8:25 AM.

Where: UNCA Health & Counseling Center Conference Room (118 W.T. Weaver Blvd)

Who:  Open to all students, staff and faculty.
