Campus Quiet: Candlelight Meditation & Relaxation
December 12, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Learning how to actively relax is a practice and a skill.
During this session, participants will explore guided, deep relaxation — a combination of progressive muscle relaxation through gentle movement coordinated with breath, and guided awareness and imagery. This practice is designed to support the body in releasing tension while suspending the mind of thought, judgement and worry, to bring the body and mind to a state of deep rest. Consciousness and awareness are still present, and at some point participants may experience the feeling of being between sleep and wakeful states.
Benefits may include: the ability to better self regulate stress, decrease in anxiety, improve sleep, and improve overall feelings of physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Actual guided relaxation practice will last about 20 minutes. No experience necessary. Please bring your own yoga mat.
Before our time together:
- To experience the most benefit, please arrive early or on time.
- Please minimize distractions like your cell phone or computer notifications.
- Practices can be done sitting in a chair or lying down on the floor with a yoga mat. For extra support and comfort, having a blanket or pillow to place under the head or knees, or over the body will optimize this experience.
