Mindfulness Mondays

This series is open to faculty and staff.

Mindfulness techniques can help us connect to a place of inner calm and peace. In each session of this series, a different mindfulness topic will be introduced with an opportunity for practice and Q&A. Topics will include mindfulness of the body, mindfulness of self-compassion, mindfulness of feelings, and mindfulness of thoughts. The sessions will be led by David Fessell, M.D. David is a Certified Mindfulness Teacher who has been meditating for several years.

This is a 4-week series, 30 minutes per session, and is appropriate for beginners or those with experience. Attendees are welcome to attend all sessions or whatever works for your schedule. These sessions are open to all and are video-optional for participants.
