The Growing Mindfulness Initiative
Check out the Growing Mindfulness Initiative Event from Spring 2021
UofL Health Promotion, in partnership with the Employee Success Center in the Office of the President, is excited to announce the launch of the new Growing Mindfulness Initiative. This campus-wide collaborative effort is built around the Cardinal Principles to cultivate a Community of Care through mindfulness. The initiative kicked with a virtual event featuring special guests President Neeli Benadpudi and Owsley Brown, a film maker and thought leader whose family founded the university’s Envirome Institute. Participants discovered and practiced various mindfulness techniques that will help decrease stress and anxiety, improve concentration and compassion, and promote well-being. Check out the video above to watch the live recording of the event.
