OISE Alumni & Friends Leadership Series

Mindfulness Practice as a Training Ground for Resilience

Interest in mindfulness practice has grown rapidly in the last decade. This is likely because there is now a depth and breadth of research showing the powerful benefits of mindfulness for supporting our bodies, minds and spirits.
Now more than ever, we are recognizing the importance of being intentional about building healthy habits of mind for cultivating presence and well-being.
In this training session, you will learn about the science and practice of mindfulness for strengthening parts of the brain that govern emotion regulation, attention and resilience to stress.
You will learn about and engage in practical strategies for beginning or deepening your own mindfulness practice.
