The Mindful Wes team of Tyla Taylor and Rabbi David joined local boarding school Choate Rosemary Hall for a mindfulness panel called “A Mindfulness Meditation Approach to Managing Stress”. Tyla talked to a group of 150+ juniors about the pressures of high school, and how mindfulness can be a useful tool for helping with concentration, understanding their emotions, and stress-resilience.

Common Grounds Event: Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

Mindful Wes partnered with the WESVO (Wesleyan Student Veterans Organization) in their monthly event called Common Grounds. The purpose of the event is to bring together students, faculty, and staff from various backgrounds, communities, and departments to engage in dialogue on a given topic in the hopes to create a more connected campus community. Because World Mental Health Day was on Thursday, October 10th, they partnered with us at Mindful Wes to help introduce basic mindfulness practices that can be beneficial for mental health. It was a great hour of pizza and meditation!

Day of Unplugging: April 18, 2019.

The Day of Unplugging is a chance to spend a day without your phone and gain awareness of your phone use habits and routines; if you feel addicted to your phone, or spend more time on it than you want to, this event is a great opportunity to learn how to reduce your dependence and cultivate healthier habits! After unplugging from 10 am–6 pm, come celebrate with a free, catered dinner at Downey House Lounge at 6:30 pm, where there will be fun giveaways and resources. Take the pledge here.
