Friday, November 2, 2018

7:45 am

Alway Building, Room M112 Map

Sponsored by:
Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Health Improvement Program

This guided meditation takes one through the practice of mindful awareness using the awareness of breathing as an anchor for staying in the moment and tuning into the sensory experiences of the body, of sounds, and even of thoughts that arise as one pays attention within oneself.

Instructor: Mark Abramson, DDS, DABOP, DABDSM, DABOM, FAACP, TMJ And Dental Sleep Medicine, Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry and Behavior Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine, Director of Stanford Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Clinic.

About the program: As part of the 2018 Contemplation By Design Summit, Guided Meditation sessions are offered in the mornings and evenings throughout the week at locations on the main and satellite Stanford campuses. Participants are offered the opportunity to experience and learn about contemplative practices that cultivate each state of P.E.A.C.E.—Pause, Exhale, Attend mindfully, Connect with nature, yourself and others, and Express P.E.A.C.E.—Prosociality, Equanimity, Altruism, Compassion, and Ethics.

The Guided Meditation leaders share their insights and wisdom born from their own backgrounds in modern secular, neuroscience and/or spiritual traditions, including Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Centering Prayer, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism and Hinduism.
