UPEI student group, the Mindfulness Club, will host an introductory session on transcendental meditation on Friday, January 24 at 7:30 pm in Main Building’s Faculty Lounge. The session will be led by Peter Cameron, certified transcendental meditation instructor with over 40 years of teaching experience in Atlantic Canada. Cameron will present some of the research that verifies the many subjective benefits of practicing this meditation technique, including improved quality of life and grade point average through stress reduction.

The Mindfulness Club was created to provide a space for those interested in calming their minds and reducing stress and anxiety levels. The demands of modern life have accelerated our lifestyles and this burdens our minds and bodies to the point of exhaustion. The group’s weekly gatherings are an opportunity to share positive and effective coping techniques, and offers members a space to participate in practices that foster a healthy mind, body, and spirit.

All are welcome to attend.
