The group can assist students in finding alternative ways of looking at life’s challenges to enable the development of healthier coping strategies.

Art journaling relies on the use of art supplies and creative techniques without the necessary pressure of a perfect result.

Mindfulness-Based Groups

Mindful Self-Compassion

  • Wednesdays 12:30-2:00 pm – Online

Self-compassion involves being warm and understanding toward ourselves when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate. Self-compassion is the opposite of ignoring our pain or punishing ourselves with self-judgment. Research suggest that the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion can help people regulate emotions, engage in healthy self-care, and respond to adversity in resilient ways. This group will help students learn the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion in order to cope with stress, anxiety, depression, and life challenges in healthy and balanced ways.

iRest Meditation

  • Thursdays 3:00-4:30 pm – Online

iRest meditation recognizes that we interpret our human experiences through our constantly changing thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. This yoga-based meditation practice incorporates psychology and neuroscience in training group members to welcome, connect with and engage these changing (and sometimes strong) states, while in a relaxed state. Members will learn to focus and release attention in a way that cultivates concentration, letting go when feeling stuck and tapping into wholeness of Being; which is always present, despite the ups and downs of life. This can lead to a stronger sense of feeling secure and safe with ourselves, while also feeling more connected to ourselves and others.  No previous meditation experience needed.

Yoga to Manage Moods    *** 5-week group, offered twice during the semester***

  • Thursdays 12:00-1:00 pm – Online

A co-ed Hatha Yoga group that provides a holistic approach to mood and symptom management.  Using a combination of gentle physical poses, breathing and relaxation techniques, this group allows participants to feel more connected and balanced within the body and mind.  A trauma sensitive, person-centered approach will be utilized and no previous yoga experience is necessary.For more information, Contact Counseling Services
