The mission of Presence is to provide a space and community that supports student's individual practices of mindfulness and meditation. Through readings, exercises, meditation practices and more, we hope to inspire students to slow down and tap into the present moment. The core pillar of Presence is community. We encourage students to come together, be vulnerable, and support each other both in their practices and their personal challenges in life. We want students to radiate with presence and peace. Through events in collaboration with various UW entities, we also hope to host workshops, meditation classes, and other educational programs to allow our energy to extend in all directions.
