Stress Reduction Program Events: Weekly Meditation, Koru Midfulness and Meditation

Posted by Tim on February 3, 2020 in Community Announcements, Event, Stress Relief, Workshops

  • Weekly Meditation Group time change to 3:30-4:30pm (from 12-1pm) on Fridays in SU 228.  Students told us that more of them could make it if we offered it later in the day on Fridays, so we hope more students can join us at the new time.  This drop-in group teaches the fundamentals of mindfulness and meditation, and provides students with a variety of meditation techniques.  Meditation props provided.  No experience necessary. 
  • We are offering three 4-session Koru Mindfulness & Meditation classes at the following times this semester—
  •  Wednesdays:  4-5:30pm—2/19, 2/26, 3/4 & 3/11 OR   2)  Thursdays:    3:30-5pm—2/20, 2/27, 3/5 & 3/12 OR   3)  Wednesdays:  3-4:30pm—4/1, 4/8, 4/15 & 4/22.  These classes help students to develop their own daily meditation practice for just a few minutes a day, and offer the opportunity to share and get support from the same group over the course of a month.  No experience necessary.  We provide the book and app for the class.  Registration is required on UBLinked or by emailing (see attached ad and registration form).
  • We are offering a 4-hour silent Koru Mindfulness Retreat on Friday 4/3 from 1-5pm in the Richmond Aerobics Studio in the Ellicott Complex.  At this silent retreat we will experiment with slowing down our thinking minds, stepping away from our SmartPhones and focusing on gratitude. The retreat will include mindfulness skill building, meditation instruction and practice time, yoga, snacks and plenty of quiet time.  All experience levels welcome.  Meditation props provided.  Pre-register on UBLinked so we know how much food to bring (see attached registration form).
