Mindfulness for stress management for graduate researchers

Expression of interest survey

Mindfulness is the quality of being present and fully engaged with whatever we’re doing at the moment — free from distraction or judgment, and aware of our thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them.

We train in this moment-to-moment awareness through meditation. Meditation allows us to build the skill of mindfulness so that we can then apply it to everyday life. In teaching the mind to be present, we are teaching ourselves to live more mindfully — in the present, taking a breath, not beholden to reactive thoughts and feelings. This is particularly helpful when faced with challenging circumstances or difficult situations.

Mindfulness for Stress Management aims to provide a supportive learning environment for participants to engage in developing a mindfulness practice. This personal mindfulness practice allows us to better manage stress.

In conjunction with attending 6 x 1 hour weekly sessions, the development of the practice requires a commitment of 20 minutes per day. Please think carefully about whether this is something you are interested in doing as the commitment to daily practice is an important part of this group.
