Mindfulness

Mindfulness has often been defined as “paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally” (Kabat-Zinn). The benefits of practising mindfulness have been shown to improve peoples’ overall health and mental health and have also been shown to be beneficial in performance enhancement.

Student Services has run several groups on mindfulness and mindfulness meditation in the past and intends to do so every semester. For information on mindfulness groups make sure to check the University’s Calendar of Events as well as Student Memos.

You are welcome to come to Student Services to talk to one of our advisers or counsellors, perhaps just for some initial advice or if you feel you want to take things further. You can drop in to make an appointment either at The ASC (The Advice and Support Centre) at 79 North Street, or our offices at Eden Court on The Scores. Alternatively, you can:-
