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.

Sky Happiness Retreat - April 2021

The Mindfulness Meditation Club RSO, UofL Health Promotion, and The Employee Success Center are partnering to offer the SKY Online Happiness Retreat to students, faculty & staff to spread mental health awareness and positivity in these difficult times. 

SKY Happiness Retreat is a 9-hour nationally acclaimed program wherein students have found immense benefits in terms of increased energy and focus and reduced stress which directly translates to better performance in academics and personal life. Recent research studies on SKY showed improvements in six areas of well-being among participants: depression, stress, mental health, mindfulness, positive affect, and social connectedness as well as better sleep quality. 

SKY Happiness Retreat is offered to UofL participants on a first-come, first-served basis through an application process, and requires attendance to all sessions of the retreat. Limited spots are available.
