The Book of Joy Mindfulness Practices: Perspective

In this practice on September 20, 2023 from 12 p.m. - 12:50 p.m., we will explore how to widen our perspective to invite joy into our lives. We will explore the nature of awareness and the ways in which widening perspective can reduce stress and cultivate wisdom, peace, and compassion.

Facilitated by Sona Dimidjian, director of Renée Crown Wellness Institute; Sapp Family Endowed Chancellor's Chair for Research Excellence; and professor of Department of Psychology and Neuroscience

Join us as we explore Perspective, one of the eight pillars of joy offered by the Dalai Lama and the Archbishop in The Book of Joy. This event is a part of a series of guided practices and book clubs offered in celebration of 23-24 Buffs One Read, sponsored by the University Libraries, the Renee Crown Wellness Institute, and the Contemplative Resource Center. To learn more about the Book of Joy, join our community course to read a summary of the chapter about Perspective, explore discussion questions, and engage in activities.
