Flyer-2023The Pause


Introducing The Pause - a sanctuary for the restless mind in a digital age. In a world inundated with constant information and digital chatter, we offer a precious respite, a sacred hour once a month to unplug, disconnect, and rediscover the art of simply being. Leave behind the relentless hum of phones, laptops, tablets, and other devices, and step into a tranquil oasis of thought, dreams, and imagination. No lectures, no incoming information - just the soothing embrace of silence and solitude. The Pause invites you to rest from perpetual incoming information, refresh your spirit, allow your mind to explore new horizons, nurture your curiosity, and perhaps even unlock fresh insights. It's more than a break; it's an invitation to improve concentration, increase self-awareness, and stimulate intellectual curiosity. Join us, and experience the power of a pause.  


Join us for the entire hour or for just part of the time.  You’re welcome to quietly come and go, as you see fit.


Location: The Warren Alpert Medical School, CSR 275
