Mindfulness Training Workshop
Date and Time
Peter Clark Hall
Registration is not required, so workshop will be offered on first come, first served basis.
Please bring a yoga mat if you have one (there will be some available for those who do not have one).
Students, faculty and staff, come and experience the benefits of mindfulness from an experienced facilitator. Have you ever been curious about what all this mindfulness hype is all about? Well then come out to this one hour engaging introductory session where we will explore different mindfulness practices, discuss what mindfulness is and isn't and ways in which we may start to cultivate mindfulness into our daily lives for our health and well-being. There will also be an opportunity to review the latest research on the benefits of mindfulness for improved resiliency.
Everyone with a heartbeat is welcome - this is a mainstream, secular approach to health and wellbeing - all faith and no faith backgrounds are welcome!
