There has been a rapid increase in recent years in interest in mindfulness and mindfulness meditation. It is the subject of academic and popular magazines and more and more people are touting various benefits of it. The University of St. Thomas Project for Mindfulness and Contemplation offers weekly mindfulness meditation and this form of meditation is one of those we occasionally practice during our Wednesday morning meditation sessions at the law school.

What is mindfulness?  How does mindfulness as discussed in the secular community differ from the role of mindfulness in different faith traditions?  And what might its role be for my spiritual growth?    

These are the questions we will consider in this mid-day reflection, which will feature Professor Tom Bushlack, an Assistant Professor in St. Thomas's Theology Department and co-director of the St. Thomas Project for Mindfulness and Contemplation. Whether you are a long-time practitioner of mindfulness meditation or just curious what it’s all about, please join us.                  

This program, sponsored by the Holloran Center, will be held from 12:30-1:30 and includes lunch. Given that lunch will be served, please RSVP to amdzik@stthomas.edu.

All programs offered by the University of St. Thomas shall be readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. For details, call (651) 962-6315.
