Weekly Mindfulness and Meditation Series

1. Mindful Monday, Mindful Everyday
Monday, April 7th: 6:00-7:30 pm --  261 Macy Hall
Facilitators: Home Nguyen, Daniel Caffarel, Rachel Diamond, Nikki Reiner, and Guests
*The final half an hour is for tea, snacks and chatting*

Use Monday evening to prepare for your week, stabilizing the mind and calming the body. We will practice letting go of worries and stress by catching our breath and feeling our body.  Then, we will have time socialize with like-minded people over tea and cookies.

2. Midday Meditation (Wednesday)
Wednesday, April 9th:  1:30-2:30 pm -- 279 Grace Dodge Hall
Facilitators: Daniel Caffarel and Guests

Come nourish your body and mind with a midday meditation. We will explore and practice mindfulness techniques that will give you an energy boost for the rest of your day -- as well as feed your curiosity and grow your practice. Beginners to advanced practitioners are welcome.

3. Mindful Lunch (Friday)

Friday, April 11th: 12:30-1:30 pm --  273B Grace Dodge Hall
Facilitators: Joe Timmins and Hua-Chu Yen

Bring your lunch and come join other mindful munchers Friday from 12:30 to 1:30 for a mindful eating lunch hour. This will be a time and a place for you to take a few breaths from your day and be present with your lunch hour. We'll spend some time sitting quietly, eating slowly, and being mindful of our food and the experience of eating. We'll also have time to discuss what it means to be mindful with food, cooking, and eating, and our experiences with mindful eating.

We spend the first half hour in guided meditation, and the second half hour in guided mindful eating and discussion. It's fun, refreshing, and a good way to ease into the end of your week. Open to TC, Columbia University, and the public.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
