Stressed? Tired? Over-burdened with work and family obligations? Living too close to the edge? You can learn to recharge your batteries and nourish yourself on a daily basis by living a more mindful life. Regular practice of meditation slows you down, creates the space you need to relax and take stock, and can provide a measure of comfort and ease in the midst of the chaos of daily life. This is NOT rocket science! Anyone can learn how to “take care of your mind” and find the still point of rest and relaxation so vital and necessary in the world we live in.
During the fall semester, Work/Life will be offering pilot meditation classes taught by Michael Faber. If you are interested and would like to participate, please email Michael Faber at firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability on Tuesdays and Thursdays so that a class schedule can be created.
