Healing Depression with Mindfulness: This group is not being offered during spring 2013. Please check our schedule for Fall 2013.
This group is intended for students who have struggled with depression in their lives. Participants will learn and practice a variety of methods to help them become more mindful, i.e. nonjudgementally aware of the present moment. As the capacity for mindfulness is cultivated, participants will then learn to identify and work with thought patterns that have spiraled into depression in the past, and develop strategies to prevent future relapses. This group is appropriate for students with a history of depression, or who are currently experiencing mild depression.
