Join the event

This Lecture is for Students, Faculty and Staff

This event is co-sponsored with the Asian Heritage Month Committee, the AAFSA (Asian American Faculty Staff Association) and the Mindfulness Club

Join us in getting centered, first through our bodies and then, hopefully through our minds, as we practice a set of mindfulness techniques to help you become more aware, as well as more compassionate and empathic. The event will begin with a brief introduction to mindfulness as a practice and then move into a discussion of Claudia Rankine’s purpose in creating her poetry collection, and conclude with the ways in which we can consider using compassion in our world today.
