Outreach Programming & Presentations

In addition to working directly with students, we offer education programs of general interest to the university community. UCC professionals present programs exploring issues such as stress management, anxiety and test taking, dealing with diversity, adjustment to college, wellness issues, creating healthy relationships, building self-esteem, body image and eating disorders, personality assessment, ACOA issues, anger management, coping through grief and loss, understanding depression, or other topics as requested.

We can also design specific workshops for your group based on your group needs and interests. If you are interested in workshop services or in-class presentations, call 477-1481 for more details. We do request advance notice of at least 2 weeks prior to the date that you would like us to present. While we cannot guarantee that all workshop requests can be met, we will make every effort to do so.

Mindfulness is a gentle state of active, open, attention on the present moment. 
We learn to observe our thoughts, bodily sensations, and feelings with a kind, loving presence, without judgment.  In this way, we discover that, "What we are looking for is that which is looking."

The Mindfulness Series is a FREE workshop and is open to all students, staff and faculty.

Each workshop will start with an introduction of the workshop concept followed by a guided exercise and discussion.

Mindfulness Meditation is a form in which distracting thoughts and feelings are not ignored but instead acknowledged and observed nonjudgmentally as they arise in order to detach from them and gain insight and awareness.

Join us this semester on Tuesdays from 12:15-1:00pm in the Spiritual Center Meditation Room.

Beginners are Welcome!
If you are a beginner, please come at 12:00pm so that you can learn the basics before we begin.

"Mindfulness Meditation doesn't change life.  Life remains as fragile and unpredictable as ever.  Meditation changes the heart's capacity to accept life as it is.
