Get Grounded with a Virtual Mindfulness Retreat

Get Grounded with a Virtual Mindfulness Retreat

Open to the community, Paula Gill Lopez, PhD will be hosting a virtual mindfulness workshop to help individuals be present in the moment versus longing for the past or ruminating about the future.

In this uncertain time, many may feel like they have little control over their lives. Get grounded with mindfulness. Join Paula Gill Lopez, PhD, associate professor and chair of the Department of Psychological and Educational Consultation, and director of the School Psychology program at Fairfield University’s Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions, for a virtual mindfulness workshop on Wednesday, May 27 at 4 p.m. Participants will learn the what, why, and how of mindfulness. The majority of the workshop will be spent experiencing mindfulness practices and exploring free mindfulness resources.

Mindfulness is a made-to-order strategy for this pandemic because it checks all the related research boxes for positive outcomes. Mindfulness helps individuals to focus in the present moment versus spending time longing for the past or ruminating on future “what ifs.”

Dr. Gill Lopez has attended many mindfulness conferences and retreats and has trained in several major programs, including Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness in Education (MiEN), Mindful Schools, and Inner Resilience.  She presents mindfulness infused self-care workshops throughout Connecticut and nationally, and has written articles and book chapters on self-care in schools. In a recent book chapter, she discusses the utility of mindfulness to combat implicit bias.
