What participants are saying:

This series gave us easy-to-learn tools that we could use in our offices to relieve stress, which was especially beneficial in our department given the stress of a recent move. It also brought together people from throughout our department with some of our new neighbors, so it helped give us a sense of community in our new space, too. - Martin Kurth, Associate University Librarian for Technical Services.
