"Simply put, meditation is changing
my life in every way - physically,
emotionally, mentally and spiritually."

"My chronic neck pain is gone. Inexplicably, another medical condition has begun healing and reversing itself when my doctor said this wouldn't be possible. There's more happiness in my life and I feel a stronger connection to others. Small things don't bother me like they used to and as a result, my home life is more harmonious. I feel a positive energy in my life and an awakening of my inner voice which is helping guide me to what is ultimately best for me and my relationships, including my
relationships with husband, adult children, and aging parents."

"I cannot overstate the benefits I've experienced since I started
practicing daily meditation. My only regret is that I didn't start
meditating earlier in life!
"
WM, 2016

Welcome to the Saint Mary’s College of California
Office of Mission and Ministry Meditation website.

This is God’s project to help other people meditate and learn to use meditation for prayer, and to develop themselves. We envision it going to all our schools, and for the faculty staff and students, and that they also may learn to share this with their family and friends. And so the Schools of the Brothers may begin to spread this beautiful practice throughout the world, because Saint LaSalle said the most important religious exercise of the Brothers is to meditate daily.

CONNECT TO YOUR DEEPER DIMENSION
UNLEASH YOUR POTENTIAL

SEVEN MEDITATION WORKSHOPS
September 16, 2017 – April 21, 2018

Welcome! Meditations are held on Saturdays, from 9:00 AM – 1:15 PM, usually at the Intercultural Center, next to the bookstore. Below you have a list of the workshops for the year, which all aim to help you connect to the deepest and best part of yourself.

This year I ask for $40.00 per workshop, more if you wish, but sliding scale if the price is too much for you; pay according to your circumstances. All enrolled students are free. Make checks out to The Chicana/Latina Foundation (or C/L Foundation); all proceeds go to their scholarships for Latinas attending college or graduate school.

Always confirm two weeks in advance by checking my website to make sure a workshop is being held. Email me for inquiries at cchavez@stmarys-ca.edu. There will also be a notification on this site if there is going to be a cancellation or change of venue two weeks before a workshop is scheduled.

    Classroom and Workshop participant comments

most important exercise of the day
"Even just a five-minute meditation can recall us to the fact that we are in the presence of a God who loves us with an overwhelming love. This is the Christian and specifically Lasallian heritage - in the Rule of the Brothers the most important exercise of the day is interior prayer..."
