I’m not a Harborview staff member…I work on campus but I would love to participate in weekly guided meditation sessions if they were available on campus either after 5pm or during my lunch hour which is 11am – 12pm.

    Gloria—Thanks for your interest and this input. Are you on the Seattle campus? We’ll try and see if we can’t get another recurring guided meditation session going at differing times in the future. Please stay tuned.
