The 2017 Pickard Contemplative Fellowship application process is now completed, but applications are still being accepted for a waitlist. Applicants must be 3rd and 4th year McIntire students.
Fellows will attend an all-expenses paid retreat Friday, Oct. 13 - Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017 at the Sevenoaks Retreat Center (including food, lodging, transportation, and retreat workshops and classes).
This fully immersive weekend retreat will focus on developing skills to make you a more resilient and successful student and future leader in your career by focusing on fostering mental discipline, enhancing stress resilience, optimizing performance, and enabling balance.
Activities include a variety of contemplative practices such as mindfulness, meditation, and mind/body fitness, as well as reflective writing exercises, case studies, and group work.
Fellows will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the weekend.
Lodging will be in shared rooms in the beautiful retreat facilities of Seven Oaks just thirty minutes from Grounds.
Faculty and staff from UVA’s Contemplative Sciences Center and McIntire School of Commerce will lead the retreat.
