This 11 week group, is offered every semester on Wednesdays from 1:30 – 3:20, with start dates in late September (Fall Semester), late January (Winter Semester), and early May (Summer Semester).

We are facilitating a nine (9) week group that teaches mindfulness skills to improve focus and emotional wellbeing. Research has shown that Mindfulness can significantly reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, improve focus and attention and lead to better overall health. The group will be offered virtually on Thursdays starting from February 3 to April 7, 2022 from 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm. Interested students need to be able to attend all 9 sessions.
