Are you stressed out about assignments? Have you ever wanted a comfy place to relax at school? King’s has a great opportunity for you to chill out!

The Mindful Meditation group meets every Wednesday from 2:30 to 3:30 in the King’s reflection room until February 12th 2015.

The Rev. Edward J.R Jackman Reflection Room, located on the second floor of the Student Life Center, has welcoming and beautiful atmosphere for meditating. The sessions are led by Shelly Meyer, who is a staff member at King’s Counselling and Student Development Services

Not too sure what to expect? Well don’t worry! All you need to do is bring yourself and leave the textbooks behind! You will be invited to close your eyes, rest and breathe.  Participants will hear the soothing sounds of a trickling water fall while laying down or sitting on a soft pillow and bench for comfort.

Going into the session, you may be feeling too fidgety or busy to meditate. However, you may be amazed at how rejuvenated you will feel after the session. Meditation gives you the opportunity to clear your mind, rest your body and reflect upon your life.

All you are expected to do is relax, close your eyes and be silent. You can reflect on your thoughts and experiences, or get instructed on breathing techniques and visualization methods for peace and calmness.

We know that King’s students work exceptionally hard, but remember to always take some time to “Just Chill Out!”
