However you identify, this group will help you discover or clarify how you’re living your identity and how you can move towards living it the way you want to. This group will be a safe, positive, supportive group of peers meeting each week to explore and discuss the experiences, ideas, challenges, and joys of being LGBTQ. Through authentically engaging with others on similar paths, you will gain insight into your own way of being and learn more about how you want to grow and develop as an LGBTQ person. Together we will challenge each other to think differently, grow in new ways, and become even more ourselves. Please contact Donn Marshall or Khalila Fordham for more information, date and time.
This is an informal, educational, and hopefully useful way to learn some tools to incorporate stress-reduction techniques, time-management skills, and mindfulness-based practices into your daily routine. This workshop series will be offered on Fridays from 1:00 – 2:00 pm in the Wheelock Student Center room 201 starting September 27, 2013. The format of the workshop will include brief education, learning of practical skills to reduce stress and anxiety, and close with a mini mindfulness-based relaxation exercise. The last 4 weeks will focus on mindfulness meditation. Each week a different topic will be discussed and a tentative schedule is listed below. This workshop will be facilitated by Charee Boulter, Ph.D. and Chris Edwards, M.S. of CHWS.
