Sky View Room, 6th Floor of MacAlister Hall; Registration required in Career Pathway
In this session we will explore techniques and teachings geared toward bringing mindfulness into everyday life: brief and potent practices that we can rely on throughout the day. We will learn how to cultivate an inner balance to help us navigate challenging situations, be more present for others, and enjoy the best that our lives have to offer. As we learn to return to settled spot in the midst of whatever life dishes up, we become more kind, resilient, and skillful.
