Join us for a course on mindfulness and its strategies for enhancing psychological flexibility, self-efficacy, and reducing reactivity.
This section of the program will feature BIPOC facilitators and offer safe program delivery for BIPOC students. Participants can explore and process challenging aspects of moving through the world as a racialized person and the unique ways that mindfulness can support their self-care.

Personal Mindfulness is the second course in the four-module Mindfulness for Resiliency Program. Over the course of three, one-hour group classes, mindfulness facilitators from the Centre for Mindfulness Studies will explore what can be helpful or harmful in our habits of mind, mood, and behaviour, and how we can work with that. You'll learn how to use a mindful practice to bring awareness to automatic thoughts and reactions, and strategies for responding rather than reacting. Sessions will offer group discussion, small group work, meditation and reflective activities.
These sessions are part of the Mindful Campus Initiative, a new program at Concordia to support post-secondary students pursuing a creative education. These courses are open to students at Concordia across all faculties. We look forward to seeing you there!
