Practicing Mindfulness:
A 9-Day Program for Higher-Ed Professionals

Combat burnout and stress by incorporating mindfulness techniques into your daily life. Sign up to receive bite-sized mindfulness lessons and activities daily for 9 business days.

The next cohort starts on Monday.


We put a lot of pressure on ourselves to show up, keep going, and perform. It's easy to lose sight of the simple moments of joy and substance in our everyday lives. Through this video course, you will develop a daily mindfulness practice that enables you to pause, connect more deeply with what’s going on around you, and stay grounded in the present moment.

Comprised of simple techniques that make use of all your senses—thought, sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch, and feeling—you will come away with a variety of mindfulness methods that you can easily integrate into your busy everyday life. Higher ed professionals at all levels who are seeking more intention, purpose, and connection will benefit from this course. This course is valued at $595, but is free for members.
