Sunset Salutations is a mindfulness meditation process of being fully present with your thoughts. Being mindful means being aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not being overly reactive to what’s going on around us.
Mindful meditation can be done anywhere. Some people prefer to sit in a quiet place, close their eyes, and focus on their breathing. But you can choose to be mindful at any point of the day, including while you’re commuting to work or doing chores.
When practicing mindfulness meditation, you observe your thoughts and emotions but let them pass without judgment.
When I was in third grade, my favorite class was science. I would stroll into my teacher’s classroom, ready to make paper airplanes or marble towers as well as learn about the human body. It was the class where I forgot time, where I was inspired to go home and try my own experiments. Science class sparked a light in me that continued into my high school career as the paper airplanes grew into model rockets and reading Neil DeGrasse Tyson books transformed into taking Physics and Mechanics as a senior.
One of the things that stood out to me when I was applying to Lawrenceville was Winterfest, mainly because I was interested in the world of theater and had never gotten the chance to be a part of any student-led productions. I wasn’t entirely sure of how the arts festival worked until I was recently cast in a Winterfest play.

I open my computer and take off my shoes. Beata ‘20, my co-choreographer, takes out a piece of paper and some pens. We are determined to choreograph a minute or more of our dance in the next two hours.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
