The new line-up of mind-body offerings at the Counseling and Testing Center have been designed to help you take good care of your mind, body and spirit. The program offers a variety of mindfulness-based practices and skills to enhance well being, decrease stress, relax, focus and settle a busy mind. Workshops are an opportunity to learn a bit more about how practicing mindfulness can be beneficial. Drop-in sessions are a friendly, informal oasis of calm to practice meditation, relaxation and mindful movement. Classes will integrate both of these models and provide a structured development of stress management, relaxation and focusing skills, while creating a space of community and peace.
