Come and Learn Mindfulness (CALM)

Come and Learn Mindfulness (CALM) gives all members of the Nobles community a daily space and a time to breathe, look inward and recharge. 
Please join Kate Harrington for 20 minutes of a guided meditation that will help alleviate stress, free your mental space, and allow you to focus on the things in life that make you happy. CALM will meet in person in Foster Gallery on Mondays from 12:55–1:15 p.m., Tuesdays from 10:40–11 a.m., and Thursdays from 2:40–3 p.m. The meetings will also be live-streamed on Zoom for those who cannot make it in person. Click here to access the link to join. If you are interested in learning more, please email Kate Harrington or Jen Hamilton.

There are tons of great, free guided meditations to try! Mindfulness and meditation can really help us cope with uncertainty, boredom, and other difficult feelings!
