Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Class
The Syracuse University Counseling Center is offering a free course in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction to SU and SUNY-ESF students. The eight-week course meets Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m., beginning Feb. 4. The program introduces participants to mindfulness meditation practices and their application to everyday life. More specifically, the course is designed to teach students how to access inner resources that improve their ability to cope effectively with the stresses of school, work and personal life.
Students interested in signing up for the class will need to attend a mandatory orientation/screening session. Students may attend a session on one of the following dates: Wednesday, Jan. 21, or Wednesday, Jan. 28, from 6-7 p.m. in 500 Hall of Languages. At that session students will be able to meet the instructor, learn more about the program, complete a brief screening and register for the class.
To sign up for the orientation session or for further information, contact the Counseling Center at 443-4715, firstname.lastname@example.org. Class size is limited.
