Relax and Renew Meditation Series

The Relax and Renew Meditation Series is offered to people who would like to enhance their healing potential physically, emotionally and spiritually through meditation. Participants will learn to relax body, mind and spirit through breathing, visualization, stress management and awareness of energetic systems. The goal of these classes is to help participants integrate a meditation practice into their daily lives. Research studies have shown meditation can lower blood pressure and heart rate, decrease anxiety, assist with pain management, increase mental clarity and focus while creating a sense of well being. 

Relax and Renew is typically offered in the Knight Law School Lewis Lounge on Wednesday evenings from 5 to 6 p.m. beginning week 3 of every term. $15 for all six weeks for students (billed to duckweb). $25 for all six weeks for faculty and staff (cash or check). Call 541-346-2770 to register.
