Assistant Director, Kent State of Well-being
Curious about what meditation is and how it might be able to help you? Are you feeling stressed out from all the recent adjustments you’ve had to make this semester? Is news about the coronavirus pandemic leaving you anxious?
Kent State of Well-being is offering Meditation Across Campus, an opportunity to join in with other members of the Kent State community for free, virtual, facilitated meditation sessions with weekly drop-in times available. Studies have shown that meditation helps to reduce stress and anxiety, can help to alleviate depression, improves cognition and reduces distractions, among several other benefits. Kent State of Well-being, Kent State University’s healthy campus initiative, is hosting free facilitated online meditation sessions that last for 30 minutes and are open to all members of the Kent State community. There is no obligation to attend. You can choose when you decide to participate.
Thursdays, Jan. 27 - Apr. 28 from 4:30 - 5 p.m. (virtual)
No class on Mar. 31
