Virtual yoga, meditations, energy medicine, and more

Sponsored by Chaplain & Spiritual Life in conjunction with Cornell College's Well-being Network

See links below for calming breath, energy, and compassion based mind-body-spirit practices with college chaplain and certified mindfulness, meditation, and yoga instructor, Rev. Dr. Catherine Quehl-Engel. Join us here anytime for 5, 10, 20, & 50+ minute practices to help you ground, release stress, strengthen your immune system, and experience peace. Offerings ranged from meditations, gentle yoga, centering prayer, and qigong, to simple daily energy medicine routines working with acupressure points, energy centers and pathways of the body. Included are healing meditations for others, world, and self.  Remember that you can approach the breath and universal life force energy or Spirit in a prayerful, spiritual way, or in a secular way amid your meditation, yoga, and qigong practices.

Throughout the school year Rev. CQE also offers weekly drop-in yoga and meditation classes as well as mindfulness courses for 1/4 academic credit.  "Mindfulness, Meditation, and Psychological Health" (PSY513) is offered each semester through the Psychology Dept.  "Awaken: Yin Yoga, Mindfulness & Peace" (REL513) is a new inter-spirituality course she is developing for launch in Fall 2020 through the Religion Department which draws upon Buddhist, Taoist, Hindu and Christian mystical or contemplative wisdom traditions.  For more informatoin and to register for classes, go to Self-Serve.
