Sit back, relax. The Clarity Capsule is here. The archlike structure, which sits at the bottom of the stairs in the Turner Concourse of the East Baltimore campus, provides a tranquil spot for students, faculty members, or visitors to spend a few minutes inside meditating, listening to music, doing a breathing exercise, or simply having a quiet moment to themselves.

“The Clarity Capsule is a visual reminder of Johns Hopkins’ commitment to supporting well-being,” says Roy Ziegelstein, vice dean for education in the school of medicine. “Having a physical space to focus and recharge [is] beneficial to many in our campus community.” Read more about wellness activities unfolding across Johns Hopkins Medicine, including the recent creation of the Office of Well-Being, in Post-Op.
