    Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) “Mindful Living” seminars are offered monthly to explore the basic tenets of mindfulness, review the significance of mindful living, and guide participants through a mindfulness practice. This month’s seminar includes a participatory workshop in which members will learn about the benefits of mindfulness and the use of music as an excellent source of focus. Participants will experience mindfulness through simple instrument playing and music listening.

    This seminar will be facilitated by Teresa Lesiuk, director and associate professor of music therapy at the Frost School of Music. Her current research examines the effect of mindfulness-based music therapy on attention and symptom distress for women with breast cancer. Lesiuk will be accompanied by graduate student John Britton, whose  clinical thesis focuses on the development of a mindfulness-based music therapy intervention for patients undergoing cancer treatment. Britton obtained his undergraduate degree in Jazz studies from Eastman School of Music in New York.
