Wellness Break - Mindfulness with CMC
In this day and age, community and connection are crucial for our wellbeing and endurance. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased our sense of social isolation and made the disparities affecting underserved groups clearer than ever. This information session, offered jointly with the Center for Mindfulness and Compassion (CMC), is designed to provide an overview of mindfulness skills and resources for wellness and community building during this time. In this session, you will have the opportunity to:
- Engage with mindfulness practices to apply in daily life
- Connect with other participants through conversation and reflection
- Learn about CMC's many offerings and resources that may be beneficial for you and/or the communities you serve
The session is open to all individuals interested, and no prior mindfulness experience is necessary.
