Meditation drop-in group

Thursday lunchtimes 12:10 - 12:30 in Room 13 (Philosophy) with Tim Wells

All students and staff are welcome. The meditations will be lightly guided with a different type of meditation explored each week. I'm hoping to explore various approaches built on a foundation of mindfulness of the body/breath.

Benefits may include reduced stress, increased happiness and spiritual enlightenment.

Everyone is welcome!

We've made a few changes in the library this term...we now have two zones, one for silent individual study and another (at the back of the library) for quiet group study work. All computers and study spaces are now on a drop-in basis, so there's no need to sign in at the helpdesk.


Test your library knowledge with our interactive library induction quiz...


The library has a brand new website! It's your one-stop shop for everything you need to know about using the library and the resources we have to support your studies. Find it on MyVarndean under the 'Learning' tab, or use the direct link below.
