Description

Sheila Mitchell, Registered Nurse, Health Services; and Dr. Celina Pereira, Physician Emeritus, Health Services. Deriving its origins from the ancient Eastern religions, particularly those of India, China, Japan, and Egypt, meditation is both a body of ancient spiritual practices and a set of contemporary mind‐ body techniques. It seeks to center the mind by concentrating focus on an object of attention, freeing the mind from material attachment, and opening the mind to heightened consciousness. This gathering of people will increase awareness of the principles and practices of meditation, and provide an opportunity to direct collective energies toward the attainment of peace and harmony at URI.
