Learn to Meditate @ DHCC - Orientation & Registration - HP170

This orientation session is a no-cost opportunity to learn more about the Learn to Meditate Four-Week program, and have an opportunity to register for the sessions beginning in late 2015. Come hear the benefits, differences and similarities of meditation and mindfulness, and how it builds your resiliency and reduces stress. The facilitator shares her success in building a weekly class of 190 participants, has a published paper and speaks at conferences about the real-life results this practice brings.

UBC Health, Wellbeing and Benefits recognizes the growing interest from our community in exploring mindfulness meditation practice and its positive impacts to wellbeing. As a unit, we strive to support pathways to increase personal resiliency, self-awareness and stress management for UBC staff and faculty. In encouraging the development of individual strengths and coping strategies, we can build more resilient and healthy, sustainable work environments.

The 4 session Learn To Meditate course in late 2015 is designed for both new and experienced practitioners of mindfulness meditation. It will introduce participants to the basic concepts of meditation and mindfulness techniques and is specifically tuned to the working environment.
