ROSE-SPONSORED WEEKLY OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRACTICE

The Registrar's Office & Student Experience (ROSE) at OISE also offers weekly opportunities to practice mindfulness.  Students are invited and encouraged to join any of the sessions offered.  

WINTER 2023

Mindful Mondays | Zoom Link | Mondays | 12:10 - 1:00 pm

These sessions will help you plan out the week ahead of you with a guided, structured, and mindful approach.
 

Visual Arts-Based Mindfulness  | Zoom Link | Fridays | 12:10 - 1:00 pm

These sessions introduce art-making as a tool to connect to the present moment. No previous experience, special materials, or skill level is required.

 

Métissage |  - 

Join us for an evening of mindfulness, writing, and collage as we introduce métissage as a way to connect with yourself and others. Métissage is an arts-based research method that weaves or braids together different accounts of lived human experiences (Hasebe-Ludt et al., 2009; Hasebe-Ludt & Leggo, 2018; Burke & Robinson, 2019). At this session, you will be invited to participate in mindfulness meditation, writing, and collage exercises as a way to explore the present moment, your identity, and/or your relationship with the land.
