Monthly meditation sessions for staff and students

When:Th 23-05-2024 16:00 - 17:00
Where:TBA (Google Calendar)

Different researchers from across the University of Groningen/UMCG lead monthly sessions of meditation. The purpose of these sessions is to build a community of people who are interested in contemplative practices and have questions about how to incorporate those into their research or student life. Each session will incorporate some practice, but also a check-in and possibility to exchange experiences on integrating contemplative practices in teaching, research and studying with each other. The sessions will include a diverse pallet of meditation practices including mindfulness, awareness meditation, loving kindness meditation, analytical meditation and more. Everyone with an interest in meditation from the University and UMCG community is welcome.

All events take place on Thursday afternoons, from 16:00-17:00, somewhere in the city centre. The exact location will be added to the Google Event, so make sure to sign up to receive an invitation.
