Flyers have been up in the hallways, reminder emails have been sent, and today begins our first after-school guided meditation program for staff and students at Calhoun HS, "Mindful Mondays"! We have a set of cushions, and plenty of chairs to sit on. Being the Choral Director at Calhoun, I'm able to volunteer a nice, big space in the Vocal Room. There are 3 of us who will be rotating as guides... myself, a guidance counsellor, and a paraprofessional. One of the great things about our Mindful Mondays is, each of us has a different style, so if anyone joins us and doesn't quite mesh with that guided meditation, they are encouraged to return the next week and get a completely different experience. It will probably start small, and grow organically, but I envision a program where students and staff are sitting right next to each other, and creating a virtuous energy through meditating together.
