Welcome to the Lesley Meditation Group!

Come relax with us!

The Lesley Meditation Group open to all students, faculty and staff at Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. We share, learn and practice a variety of meditative techniques, including using breath, imagery, movement, sound, creativity and compassion.

Meetings are Tuesday evenings, 7:30-8:30PM in Women's Center in White Hall on the Main Campus Quad (inside White Hall next to the Dining Hall).

Fall 2010 Meetings begin on October 5th.

Each week we begin with breathing, stretching, and either a body scan or progressive muscle relaxation. Then we focus on the theme and technique for that week, and end with about 10-15 minutes of silent meditation.

This group is facilitated by graduate students in the Lesley Counseling Psychology Division with certification from the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine to teach basic stress reduction techniques.

For more information or to be added to the weekly email list, contact Renee at meditate@lesley.edu.

Thank you for your interest! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Fall 2009 Schedule

Greetings everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the summer.

As the summer is winding down, I'm starting to think about the Fall semester and the Meditation Group.

I'm hoping to facilitate two weekly meetings, one on Tuesday evenings, 7:30-8:30PM, at the Women's Center in White Hall, and one during lunchtime in University Hall. Lesley students and employees are welcome to attend either. I hope to set a schedule by early September.

Last year, I did not get all the paperwork to make this an official student activity group, which would be one avenue to funding. I am still looking for current undergraduates who would be willing to volunteer as board members.

Please email me at meditate@lesley.edu with any thoughts, questions, or suggestions.

See you soon!
