Mindful Meditation


I have been leading weekly mindfulness meditation at Lehigh for the past few years. These live sessions continue on a weekly basis during the academic year and will return in the fall either online or in-person. This has yet to be decided.

Regardless, if you aren’t available at that time, or if you’d like to meditate at another time, I am posting recordings of most meditation sessions here. I hope you find them helpful during these challenging times. If you have any comments or questions, please contact me at spn217@lehigh.edu

L’shalom – in Peace,
