Wellness Circle - Mindfulness

Faculty and Staff Wellness Circle
The autumn Wellness Circle focuses on mindfulness. We will use the "Mindfulness for Beginners" podcast on LinkedIn Learning by mindfulness pioneer and author Jon Kabat-Zinn as the foundation for our learning. Wellness Circle discussions will be facilitated by O&LD and Dr. Urvashi Mulasi, Nutrition faculty and Director of the Dietetics program, who has studied and practiced mindfulness for many years, including with Jon Kabat-Zinn.

We will meet as a wellness circle on Friday, November 20, 12:10 - 12:50 for a welcome and brief orientation. Attendance at this first session is mandatory so participants can locate and download the podcast we will be utilizing for self-study. Wellness Circle participants will listen to specified sections of the podcast at their convenience. We will come together on Friday, 12/4, and Friday, 12/11, to discuss the teaching and mindfulness practice.
