Seeding Mindfulness: Growing Contemplative Community and Cultivating Well-being Across Campus

Well-being belongs everywhere; it does not begin or end in any one unit of campus life - whether classroom, office, or dorm. This session explores the collaborative creation of dispersed contemplative campus practices and the capacity of a decentralized approach to bust silos, foster well-being, and create meaningful connection across departments and units. Co-presenters are participants in the Hollins Contemplative Collective, a diverse team of faculty, staff, and administrators who meet regularly for mindfulness practice and reflection. Whether teaching or fundraising; career counseling or developing diversity and inclusion initiatives; in the dance studio, library, or chapel: participants reflect on their contemplative initiatives as contributions to the interconnectedness of campus life. Attendees will be guided in reflection on their own locations in campus communities, and gain resources to collaboratively sow seeds of well-being that take root across campus.
