​Center for Mindfulness and Well-being

The Center is a space for the Providence College community of students, faculty and staff to reconnect in body, mind and spirit.  The intention is to foster a greater sense of mindfulness in one’s everyday life.  One can become overwhelmed and stressed, caught in cycles of negative or draining thoughts about the past and future.  People often try to manage this stress by engaging in unhealthy habits or destructive behaviors that tend to cause even greater unease in life.  Mindfulness is the practice of bringing one’s attention in a focused manner to the present moment with a sense of curiosity and non-judgment (Kabat-Zinn, 1990).  This practice is proven to reduce stress and cultivate greater well-being (see http://www.fammed.wisc.edu/mindfulness/research).  In this spirit, the Personal Counseling Center, Student Health and the Department of Recreational Sports have come together to provide a peaceful space in which to offer integrated wellness programming that inspires human flourishing – a deep connection within one’s self and to the community.

 

 

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.
