Submitted by Annie Zhao for Student Open Circles

Start the new term (that is full of more changes) by consciously creating your life to match your authentic self. A chance to find support with other travelers on the path who are asking similar questions. Try a variety of mindfulness practices and experiment with integrating them into your daily life. This series is funded by Open Circles.

We will explore the following themes:

  • Set goals for each area of your life this term to consciously create a sustainable daily routine
  • Practice self-care and self-compassion: How will you sustain and take care of yourself going forward?
  • When life changed in the pandemic, how was your sense of meaning, purpose, and personal success affected?
  • Reflect on and articulate your values and life dreams
  • Develop a mindful, compassionate definition of success
  • Build confidence, purpose and joy
  • How to work with weaknesses and difficult emotions such as fear, loneliness, frustration, or uncertainty
  • Integrate gratitude into daily life while developing compassion for others and contributing to a better world

What you need to know:

  • The course includes weekly 50-minute workshops with interactive group exercises, self-awareness and mindfulness practices to try on your own, and a meeting with a staff coach
  • You will be guided in practicing daily mindfulness exercises in your own time and submit a short weekly reflection about your experiences with these exercises
  • Six week series from January 17 – February 25
