Contemplation by Design (CBD) is a campus-wide, multidisciplinary event designed to encourage all members of the Stanford community to enjoy the power of the pause.
From November 1–9, 2017, free events will be offered all around campus that further balance, tranquility and creative excellence. Faculty, staff and students will have the opportunity to take a short break from their high-level output of productivity and innovation in order to rest and renew the mind-body-spirit.
Each event is designed to bring the Stanford community together in recognizing the importance of quieting the thinking mind and refreshing oneself through quiet contemplation. Events include research on the neuroscience of contemplation, skill-building, campus arts and experiences with the natural beauty found right here on campus.
On Friday, 11/3, the Hoover carillon bells will be ringing to signal the university’s commitment to emotional well-being. All members of the Stanford community are invited to gather at noon in Dorhmann Grove, the Oval ear and Meyer Green to share the concert and contemplative pause. The Carillon concert will also be broadcast live on KZSU radio at 90.1 FM and streamed online at kzsulive.stanford.edu.
*BeWell berry is awarded to faculty/staff for registered participation.
