Guided Meditation for Zips July 24 - Aug. 21
10:00 am - 10:30 am

spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Meditation is the delicate art of doing nothing – letting go of everything and being who you are. Our minds are often busy swinging between thoughts about the past and the future. Meditation is a way to get out of this. Meditation makes our body stronger and brings vitality. It sharpens the intellect and brings happiness to the mind. It helps to improve and enhance our behavior and the way we deal with the people around us. It eliminates stress.

Please join us for guided meditation sessions every Friday this summer, through Aug. 21, from 10 to 10:30 a.m. in Akron Engineering Research Center 203.

All faculty, staff and students are welcome. No prior training is required.

People in more than 150 countries are taking advantage of this meditation technique. Would you like to give it a try?
