Summer Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction MBSR Series for Faculty & Staff
Feel like your brain has too many tabs open? Mindfulness can help quiet the chatter.
Mindfulness is the basic ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we are doing. It allows us to not be overly reactive or overwhelmed by what is going on around us.
It allows us to focus awareness on a present moment, calmly acknowledging and accepting our feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations.
Student Health Services is offering an 8-week series on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) for faculty and staff. Space is limited to 15. We will start a wait list once 15 spots per series are filled. Registration Deadline: June 4, 2018.

Time: 12-1 p.m.
