    A common misconception about mindfulness is that it needs to be practiced seated, in total stillness and silence, with your eyes closed.

    In reality, mindfulness is simply (while simultaneously being complex) a practice of cultivating presence, and one of the most powerful ways to experience its benefits is by incorporating it into your day to day life.

    Through a combination of a talk, meditation practices, and group discussion, we'll explore a variety of ways you can weave mindfulness into your life simply and effectively. You might be surprised to learn that it can be as easy as doing the dishes!

    This workshop is open to all levels of mindfulness practice and experience. Come as you are.

    Our instructor Dawn Mauricio (she/her) has been practicing and studying Insight Meditation since 2005, and has graduated from several Buddhist programs, including Spirit Rock's 4-year Retreat Teacher Training. She teaches with a playful, dynamic, and heartfelt approach in Canada and the US, to teens, people of color, and folks of all backgrounds.

    Being able to lead teams in a way that fosters a welcoming and inclusive environment is a vital supervisory skill. Understanding the interactions that can take place on teams as a result of difference, and choosing leadership strategies appropriately, can be challenging. What happens when triggers divide team members from each other, or even from the supervisor? This workshop is intended to encourage participants to critically examine their own and others’ viewpoints, and practice using some leadership actions to work through these challenging situations.

    This talk will explore the various aspects of how different sugars affect our body's metabolism and our brain's pleasure response. We will offer some perspective on how much "sugar" is needed on a daily basis and why the US Dietary Guidelines recommend limiting added sugar to less than 10% of daily caloric intake.

    Jennifer Nasser, PhD, is a registered dietitian and nutritional neuroscientist with postdoctoral training in obesity research and addiction psychiatry. She has over twenty years of experience conducting human nutrition-related research. Her laboratory research focuses on the brain’s response to food and nutrients, the use of alternatives to food rewards, and how the brain’s response to food and nutrients, and use of alternative rewards varies across metabolic and psychiatric disorders. She is also engaged in community-based translational research involving the effectiveness of home delivery of medically prescribed meals and the application of nutrition-related health indices to the provision of food for the homeless.

    Tension and stress have a sneaky tendency to build without us even knowing. Most often we don't realize their effects until we give ourselves a minute to relax. In this practice, you'll be guided through self-massage techniques to alleviate knots and tightness to create more space. A great way to unwind and give yourself much needed time to reset and restoration.

    You will need one or two tennis balls to complete this practice. And you will also need loose comfortable clothing and space to lie on the floor.

    Our instructor, Anisha Chirmule, is an experienced teacher and practitioner of yoga in the Philadelphia area. She has been involved in forms of movement throughout the entirety of her life as a form of physical and mental therapy, and found yoga in 2010. Since 2014, she has completed training in Ashtanga yoga, alignment based yoga, myofascial release therapy and a 500 hour advanced training under the guidance of several prominent Philadelphia based teachers. Throughout different points of her life, the practice of yoga on and off the mat has been a common denominator for Anisha. The line between teacher and student blends in each class she offers, as she loves the shared experience of discovering new potential and deeper understandings of shared universal values. In class, Anisha hopes to leave students with a new expansion of their capacities and maybe a laugh through the process.
