    Medical Humanities: Theory and Practice of Mindfulness Virtual Workshop

    Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 6:00 PM until 7:00 PMEastern Daylight Time

    “Mindfulness is a way of befriending ourselves and our experience.” Jon Kabat-Zinn
    In this hour long mindfulness seminar, Professor Erin Sheehan  will be offering practical guidance on meditation practice and sharing of the benefits of practice especially as it relates to stress, anxiety, and self-compassion. Students should “begin where they are” and are not expected to have any previous experience. Erin will be available after the session for any questions and will provide students with supportive resources to continue with their meditation practice. Erin is a contemplative scholar and researcher of silence with a focus on learning environments. Her work includes bringing mindfulness programs to elementary schools, teens, and families with attention on fostering digital balance using mindfulness tools and tenets.  Erin teaches the graduate course, “Theory and Practice of Mindfulness” at Drew which will be offered in the Fall 2021 semester.

    Don't forget to attend our Caspersen School of Graduate Studies Virtual Open House on April 14 from 5-6 PM.
