Fall 2017 Workshop Schedule
Cultivating mindfulness helps us appreciate our lives more fully, even as it supports our health on many levels. The Wellness Centre is offering a six-week group called, “An Introduction to Mindfulness”, based on the principles of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). If you are a registered student at Trent, you are eligible to attend and there is no fee. Participants need not have any prior experience.
Please note that to complete the registration process, you will need to fill out a questionnaire via a link that will be sent to you using the email address you provide in the first step of the registration process below. The purpose of the questionnaire is to understand your needs more fully and general themes participants may be interested in hearing about. Since each session builds upon the next and involves practice homework (approximately 15 to 30 minutes daily), you are invited to consider whether you can commit at this time to attending the series and making some space in your schedule for practice.
