CANCELED – PhD+ Workshop – Mindfulness

November 29, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm  |  Virtual and In Person


Mindfulness is a particular way of paying attention. It is the mental faculty of purposefully bringing attention to one’s present moment experience. Practicing mindfulness can lead to: improved ability to focus, increased patience and adaptability, greater empathy and compassion, and improved feelings of well-being. In this session we’ll review mindfulness basics and try a couple of short practices that you’ll be able to do on your own.

Meg Corman (she/her) is a certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher and has taught MBSR and mindfulness classes since 2012 locally and in the South Bay. She is currently teaching through Dignity Health in Santa Cruz and is also a Community Dharma Facilitator at Insight Santa Cruz, a Buddhist meditation center.

Register by November 21st for in-person attendance in Graduate Student Commons, Room 204. The event will also be accessible virtually via Zoom. Complimentary vegan lunch provided to in-person attendees.
