Health Improvement Program, Office for Religious Life

Join us in the awe-inspiring tranquility of Memorial Church for a walking meditation. The event will be centered on the inscriptions carved in the sandstone interior walls of this beautiful sacred space. Assembled by Jane Stanford, these inscriptions represent a collection of instructive and inspirational quotes to nourish the soul and spirit.

Facilitators: The Rev. Joanne Sanders, D.Min, Associate Dean for Religious Life at Stanford, preaches and presides regularly at services in Memorial Church. She has brought contemplative practices such as Compline, an evening candelit service of chanted song and the Labyrinth, to the Stanford and local community.

Tia Rich, PhD, Stanford Senior Specialist in Health Promotion, and Director of Contemplation By Design, has been integrating mindfulness, compassion and meditation into stress management and resilience cultivation programs at the University and Medical Center since 1984.
