Meditation

Come and join our free, weekly crystal meditation every Tuesday, from 1-2PM at RAC studio 2 with Reah & Rachel hosted by SMASH (Students for Mental Awareness, Support, & Health). All are welcome, regardless of your experience with crystal meditation. We will spend approximately 50 minutes of mediation by using the energy of crystals, love, and peace followed by a short 5-10 minute chat of your experiences afterward. Feel free to stop by and leave anytime you wish.There will be yoga mats to sit on, so you do not need to bring anything but your open heart. However, if you want the extra comfort, bring your pillows/blankets/towels. You are always welcome to bring your own crystals in order to enhance your relationships with them.

MOVIE NIGHT! Hold Your Fire

From CBC: “Hold Your Fire explores the reasons why officers who signed on to serve and protect somehow end up shooting a vulnerable person. The documentary looks at how police training and response to people in crisis went off track, and shows how progressive police forces, from Rialto, California to Leicester, U.K., are striving to get onto a better path. We travel with Canadian police mobile teams to calls involving people in emotional crisis, and meet a Hamilton mental health worker who responds to 911 calls and is quite possibly the only civilian in Canada to ever send home the tactical team.Join the Criminology Course Union (CCU) and Students for Mental Awareness, Support and Health (SMASH) and other criminology Students for an interactive screening of the documentary and a discussion with distinguished visiting professor Dr. Alok Mukherjee.
