Mindful McQuade Spring Programming

Made possible by the 2017-2018 Provost Innovation Fund, we are pleased to offer two workshop groups as part of the Mindful McQuade Initiative. 

Stress Reduction with Mindfulness                                      Participants will learn mindfulness and meditation to help calm and focus the mind.  Commitment to attend all 4 groups is recommended.  Pre-registration is required by emailing howlandj@merrimack.edu or phoning 978-837-5441.

Instructor: Jim Howland, Ed.D., LICSW, Hamel Health and Counseling
Location: McQuade Library Meditation Room Lower Level Room.
Dates: Tuesdays, March 6,13,20 April 3
Time: 4PM-5PM

Empowered Breathing and Meditation for Anxiety and Stress Reduction            Students will be led through varying Pranayam practice (specialized breathing sequences and techniques). Using the breath as a focus can be a very simple way to calm the body and mind as well as connect the two. I teach various breathing practices designed to stimulate the parasympathetic system, countering the overstimulation our bodies and mind go through when in times of stress. Using the breath in this way allows energy to flow and move around the entire body. The effect can be energizing, relaxing and healing.

Students may like to bring a notebook and pen to record any experiences that may arise in class. Classes are 60 minutes. Drop-ins Welcome, registration requested by emailing C.J. Wong, wongc@merrimack.edu or phoning 978-837-5350.
