RecWell’s Mindful Ambassador Program (MAP) aims to identify students, faculty, and staff who are interested in creating a mindful revolution and healthier campus community.

Mindful practice has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and symptoms of burnout - challenges that we know many students and staff have experienced, or continue to experience. 

In this two-hour workshop, you will learn about various types of meditation, belly breathing, mindful posture, and special considerations for leading meditation with others. There will also be opportunities to practice facilitating the different meditations learned. 

Those who complete the workshop will receive additional mindfulness resources to lead meditation in the community along with a sticker to symbolize leadership on campus.
