Intentional Meditation 2024
Thursday, January 25, 5 PM
Open the semester and new year with purposeful at an evening of intention setting and meditation. Whether you have never meditated or are a seasoned practitioner, you are welcome. Once we conclude inside, all students are invited to stay intentional for their commute home (or to their cars) as the brisk evening air of January in Pittsburgh can be a harsh reality check. We’ll find ways within our intentional meditation to stay present and use the darker skies and brisker air to keep us grounded in the new year. University Counseling Center staff will be there to debrief your experience or support you as you begin the new semester. This event is a collaboration with Heinz Memorial Chapel, the Stress Free Zone, and Natural Connections.
Free to Pitt Students.
