Instructor: Taqwa Surapati, G.C.I.C., Cancer Care Chaplain, Spiritual Care Department at Stanford Health Care

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.
