This weekly meditation class will be led by Babson’s Meditation Instructor, Chris Scheller, who will guide participants through a variety of accessible, secular meditation techniques adapted from the Buddhist tradition. These simple and direct practices cultivate relaxation, mindfulness, and basic wellbeing.

This class is suitable for any experience level.

He concentrated his studies on the intersection of meditation and psychology, as well as the history of meditation practices within the Buddhist tradition.

A Play By Bruce Norris
Directed by Professor Beth Wynstra

Real estate and racism collide in this Pulitzer Prizewinning play that returns to the neighborhood portrayed in the classic A Raisin in the Sun and explores a half century of life in urban America. Wickedly funny, the play looks at modern gentrification and asks us to reconsider our notions of privilege, race, and neighborhoods.
