Planetarium Meditation

Meditation is suspended for the summer

Due to scheduling conflicts, meditation will resume in the fall of 2017.

Meditation Under the Stars

Anybody who has even been to a planetarium knows how relaxing they can be, with the soft lighting and music. We are open on Wednesdays at 11:00 am for guided meditation sessions with Dr. Michael Devalve. The meditation sessions last about 45 minutes, and for those on lunch break on Wednesday, don't worry about the time: lights come on at precisely 11:50. The meditation sessions focus on breathing techniques and imagery, with a focus on stress relief and a goal of fostering a sense of relaxed concentration towards your everyday tasks.

Meditation sessions are free and open to the public, but do be sure to register your car on campus to avoid the meditation-negating experience of a parking ticket. You can also avoid the hassle of registering your car on campus by parking across the street in Bronco Square--only be sure to be a good customer and visit the farmers' market that runs at the same time in the parking lot.

If you're late, you're still welcome to join us. The door will be closed but unlocked, and simply follow the directions posted on the door in case the planetarium is already dark.
