Mindful Mondays
 
Do you typically feel like you're being pulled in a dozen different directions at once, with no time or energy to find your balance? Make a small (but potentially rewarding) investment in yourself this year and join us in the Center for Teaching Excellence for Mindful Mondays. These weekly mindfulness sessions are intended to give you a chance to just sit still and breathe for awhile - to relax, de-stress, and re-center yourself.  
 
We have two sessions each Monday, one from 9:30 - 10:30 am and another from 1:30 - 2:30 pm. Each hour is broken into two half-hour periods, in which a half-hour introductory session is followed by a half-hour of silent meditation.
 
You do not have to stay for the full hour, or even for a full half-hour. Come for ten or fifteen minutes, or for however long you are able to stay. If you have already participated in the introductory session and would like more time to meditate, you're welcome to come and sit through the entire session. Complete beginners are welcome, as are experienced practitioners.
 
For more information, go to this website. If you have any questions about Mindful Mondays, please contact the CTE.
