Mindful Walking


This month’s Mindful Living seminar, offered by the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program, will focus on walking mindfully. Walking is a great way to integrate mindfulness into your everyday life and has been practiced as a meditative technique for thousands of years. Being mindful increases engagement with the present moment and allows for a clearer understanding of how thoughts and emotions impact our health and the quality of our lives. Attend to awaken your innate capacity for mindful living and nurture a practice to positively inspire every facet of your life. This seminar will be facilitated by Carol Kaminsky, a board-certified dance-movement therapist and a faculty member in the University of Miami dance program who has taught mindful movement and meditation for stress reduction (MBSR) for over 20 years.

IMPORTANT: Please bring comfortable walking shoes, as this practice will take place outdoors.
