I am honored to have been invited to do a guided meditation at the 2018 Relay for Life, an overnight program sponsored by the American Cancer Society. The Relay at Calhoun is a big deal, with much of the school community (students, staff, parents and families) participating. Of course, there is something to be said about the energy created when a community of like-minded individuals comes together for a single purpose, and I am excited for the opportunity to guide a meditation this evening at 10:30pm.
Today is the start of the two-week Advanced Placement Exam testing week, arguably one of the most stressful periods of the school year at Calhoun HS. Thanks to the incredible support that I have received from my Principal, one of our Guidance Counsellors and I will be offering a quick 15-minute meditation, prior to each exam group being bussed over to the testing center. For the morning exams, we'll meet at 7:10am in the Vocal Room, and for the afternoon exam, we'll meet at 11am in the Auditorium. I am fortunate to have this opportunity to help students to relax and focus, prior to their exams.
