Spring Break Meditation and Care Guide

What would it look like to lean into habits of rest and renewal this spring break?

Feeling tired as the semester drags on? Want to use spring break to reflect and recharge, but not sure how? 

We've got you covered! The Office of Spirituality and Meaning-Making's Spiritual Teacher-in-Residence Cole Arthur Riley has developed an amazing resource just for Cornell students.

Don’t let spring break just be about outward travel—make time to journey inward, too. This care guide invites you to set aside a few moments each day to take a deep breathe, reflect on a quote or question, and affirm yourself.

"There is in you something that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself and sometimes there is so much traffic going on in your minds, so many different kinds of signals, so many vast impulses floating through your organism that go back thousands of generations, long before you were even a thought in the mind of creation, and you are buffeted by these, and in the midst of all of this you have got to find out what your name is. Who are you? How does the sound of the genuine come through to you?"—Howard Thurman
