Practicing mindfulness helps my Northeast Delta Dental colleagues and me cope with stress and increase our productivity, so I’m happy to share the news that a portion of the funds we gave to the Community College System of New Hampshire to support its events will be devoted to Mindfulness in Society: Rebuilding for a Better Future, a four-part virtual speakers’ series offered by NHTI, Concord’s Community College.
This series invites participants to learn how mindfulness can help us address life’s challenges, particularly those we have experienced during the last year and a half.
The full series is $50; each session is $15. The sessions run from 5–6:30 p.m. All money raised will support NHTI students through its food pantry and emergency fund. The topics include:
· The Role of Mindfulness in Transforming Communities on October 11 by Sara Flitner and Scott Rogers.
· Mindfulness: Meeting the Existential Challenges of the 21st Century on October 18 by Jamie Bristow.
· Befriending Breath: The Subtle Neuroscience of Breath Awareness on October 25 by Norman Farb.
