Walking Meditation and Contemplation of Memorial Church Inscriptions
November 06, 2019|12:30pm
Join us in the awe-inspiring tranquility of Memorial Church for a walking meditation. The event will be centered on the inscriptions carved in the sandstone interior walls of this beautiful sacred space. Assembled by Jane Stanford, these inscriptions represent a collection of instructive and inspirational quotes to nourish the soul and spirit.
The Rev. Joanne Sanders, DMin, Associate Dean for Religious Life at Stanford, preaches and presides regularly at services in Memorial Church. She has brought contemplative practices such as Compline, an evening candlelit service of chanted song, and the Labyrinth, to the Stanford and local community.
Tia Rich, Ph.D., Director, Contemplation by Design (CBD), has been integrating contemplative practices into resilience, stress management and career training programs at Stanford University and Medical Center since 1984. Her creation and leadership of the CBD program is an expression of her steadfast dedication to the resilience and well-being of the Stanford community.
