All-expenses paid retreat for 3rd and 4th year McIntire students from Oct. 13 (Fri) to Oct. 15, (Sun) at the Sevenoaks Retreat Center
Are you trying to juggle too much? Is life stressing you out? Learn how practicing mindfulness - a state of enhanced attention to and awareness of current experience – can help you cope with stresses more effectively. This course is a highly interactive, collaborative learning experience that gives you the opportunity to explore accessible techniques ranging from mindful awareness in walking, sitting, eating, and resting, to yoga to reflective writing that may enhance your ability to have greater well-being, concentration and focus. We will draw upon new research in neuroscience, cognitive science, and developmental science, and adapt practices from contemplative traditions in secular ways that will serve you in student life and beyond.
