Learn How to Manage Stress!

Posted on 11/6/2013 10:53:46 AM

The Undergraduate Mindfulness Workshop has two sessions that will help you manage some of the stress you may be feeling or will be feeling with finals right around the corner. The workshop will be held on Friday, November 15, 2013, from 6:00–9:00 p.m. in Wallwork, G98. Register by e-mailing your name to Patti at pshaffer@iup.edu.

This workshop consists of two sessions:

The first is a meditation session that will consist of sitting meditation, walking meditation, and group reflection that will be led by Caleb Finegan. The second is a session on Mindful Reading and Writing led by Daniel Weinstein:

“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 e-mailing Patti at pshaffer@iup.edu by November 13!

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