The Cultural Relevance of Mindfulness and the BIPOC Student Experience

In recognition of Black History Month, come learn about the benefits of mindfulness, equanimity, and other meditative strategies that can help students prioritize their mental well-being in a time when culture and social injustice can take their toll. Studies have shown that these and other contemplative practices may also contribute to creating the general conditions that support minimizing bias.  This session is virtual via Zoom.
