Practice Meditation with CSC: Resources and Opportunities
VIRTUAL MEDITATION ON THE LAWN
CSC and partners across Grounds offer these brief virtual meditations every Monday at 7:50am ET. Each week a different instructor, practitioner, or UVA community leader guides these brief sessions. This weekly offering is open to the UVA community and anyone else who is interested in pausing, particularly at this very stressful and often lonely time, to cultivate mindfulness, compassion, resilience, and a sense of belonging with others so inclined.
