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!

Special Opportunities!

There will NOT be a meditation group at the Women's Center this week; we will resume next week. Sorry for the long hiatus.

Instead of our usual meeting this week, we'll be attending a free meditation workshop in the tradition of Sri Chinmoy, that is going to be at Lesley but in University Hall (there were some flyers up in University Hall). The workshop will be the next 4 weeks, at the same time as our meditation group, 7:30PM. I will only be attending for the first week, but I encourage any of you to attend any of those workshops instead of the usual meditation group, as you'd like.

Free Meditation Classes from Tradition of Sri Chinmoy
University Hall Room 4-040
Tuesdays Oct. 27, Nov. 3, Nov. 10, Nov. 17

I spoke with Begabati Lennihan today, who will be teaching the classes.

Here is a bit about Sri Chinmoy, on the website about these classes:

In addition to teaching meditation, Begabati is a homeopathy practitioner and teacher, and has been renting space here at Lesley for the past few years, and she has taught about homeopathy in Jan Wall's classes.

Back in the women's center

As there is a choir rehearsal right below Stebbins 203, we will be moving back to the Women's Center. Sorry for any inconvenience!
