Wellness Wednesday: Navigating Uncertainty w/Mindfulness
Interested in finding simple yet impactful ways to weave wellness into your professional and personal life? If so, please join faculty and staff colleagues for Wellness Wednesdays. Each session offers information, resources, and/or immersion into different wellness modalities that are supported at UMBC.
These times have been called unprecedented and yet we have all lived through adverse, uncertain times before. Indeed, the only thing we can ever count on is movement, transformation, and change. Instead of resisting the current it might serve us to learn to flow with it and even learn from it. This session will be a virtual hands on deep dive into the practice of mindfulness meditation as a practical tool for dealing with uncertainty and change. In our time together we will explore basic tenets of mindfulness and practice together expanding our mindset to 'welcome the unwelcome,' begin cultivating compassion for ourselves and others, and practice accepting situations as teachers, or as the poet Rumi suggests, 'guides from beyond.' Participants will leave with tools to perceive these times differently as well as the start of a practice that has been proven to foster well-being and ease.
