Posted on 11/5/2013 9:56:59 AM

Learn valuable relaxation exercises at the Undergraduate Mindfulness Workshop, to be held on Friday, November 15, 2013, from 6:00–9:00 p.m. in Wallwork Hall, G98. Register by e-mailing your name to Patti at pshaffer@iup.edu by November 13.

A meditation session consisting of sitting meditation, walking meditation, and group reflection will be led by Caleb Finegan. Daniel Weinstein will conduct a session on Mindful Reading and Writing:

“Mindful attention to our bodies (to our breath, to our steps) promotes a quiet sense of calm and well-being that can help us gain insight into reality and empower us to act with concentration and kindness, beyond our insecurities.  In this workshop we look at how we may bring this same mindful awareness to our reading and writing, how we may use these literacy practices as vehicles for contemplative self-exploration and as seed beds of action that is both compassionate and creative.”

Registration is required by November 13!

This workshop is brought to you by the Mindfulness Living Learning Community and the Center for Health and Well-Being.
