Event description: 

Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice is an eight-week, interactive program which focuses the power of mindfulness on personal character strengths. The purpose is to train participants on both mindfulness and character strengths practices and to learn how each enhances the other. This synergy can then be used to create one’s best life and to better navigate challenges. Learn what your unique strengths are and how best to use them mindfully at work and at home, with colleagues, friends, and family. Discover how to shift your focus from what’s wrong to what’s strong.

Each one-hour session of this 8-week series consists of mindfulness practices, including meditation, brief written character strengths exercises, group discussion, and presents new content from week to week. Being able to attend all sessions and participate as best as possible is important for an optimal experience.

In this series participants will explore:

  • Shifting from autopilot to mindfulness
  • Their unique constellation of strengths
  • The powerful integration of mindfulness and strengths
  • Ways to deepen and value relationships
  • How we all may overuse or underuse our strengths
  • Practices for enhancing engagement with life

This series is led by Danielle Casioppo, MS, Education Specialist with Being Well at Yale and Charter-certified MBSP instructor and faculty member with the VIA Institute on Character.

Series schedule: 12:00 - 1:00 PM, Tuesdays, October 24 - December 19*
