Health Improvement Program

A simple way to bring Mindfulness practice into your life is with awareness of your body. Practice focused mindful breathing and exercises that bring openness and connection to your body for a calm, balanced start to your day.

Instructor: Christy Matta, BeWell Coach at Stanford, Author of The Stress Response: How Dialectical Behavior Therapy Can Free You from Needless Anxiety, Worry, Anger, and Other Symptoms of Stress

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.
