Introducing Everyday Mindfulness: Taking Time for Ourselves

The CAPSS’ Women in Leadership Committee, is happy to announce our first virtual session for the 2020-2021 academic year.  The meeting will be on November 20, 2020 from 9 am to 10:30 am.

Given the challenges of this year and their disproportional impact on women and women of color, we wanted to dedicate this first session to connection and finding space and time to care for ourselves in community.

During this session, Elizabeth Baratta LMHC (bio provided below) will provide insights into mindfulness, what it is, and how it can help us to find moments of reflection and self-care. She will lead us through some exercises and provide tips for findings time and space for this practice amongst the chaos and pressures of our lives.

We hope to see you (even if you can just drop in). In the meantime, we are sending thoughts of safety, health, and sanity to you and yours.
