February 5 through April 2
- What is mindfulness, & how is it helpful in law school/practice? Law students and attorneys across the country are using mindfulness techniques to improve their focus, manage stress, and communicate better with colleagues and clients. You can apply mindfulness to just about anything you do: mindful listening, mindful exercise, mindful eating, mindful test-taking.
- What is the workshop? The U.Va. Mindfulness Center has been teaching mindfulness for over a decade. They have developed a workshop for U.Va. Law, sponsored by the Law Library. In each of the 8 workshop sessions we will learn and practice a new mindfulness technique, including: breathing meditation; mindfulness of emotions; and mindful movement.
- But I know nothing about meditation….You do not need any prior experience to participate in the workshop.
- How do I sign up? The workshop will meet each Thursday, 3:45 to 5pm, February 5 to April 2 (except for Spring Break). Email Kristin Glover in the Library to sign up. To get the most out of the workshop, commit to attending each session. The workshop is free to participants.
