Deepening the Foundations for Equity and Renewal: Embodied Mindfulness as a Support for Difficult Conversations, Institutional Transformation and Collective Resilience
April 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In this BLI Speaker Series event, Professor Rhonda Magee will draw on both interdisciplinary research and 20+ years of scholarship, teaching and practice to explain the key benefits of integrating embodied mindfulness — compassion-based mindfulness teachings and practices — into the work of fostering equity and inclusion in this time. Professor Magee will outline ways in
which doing so promises not only to deepen inclusivity and equity, but also to enhance healing from trauma and promote personal and collective wellbeing. A short, interactive practice will be included.
Hosted in partnership with Wolverine Wellness, the Department of Psychology, and the Rackham Graduate School.
