Better Lawyering Through Mindfulness Workshop

About The Workshop

This 8-week workshop is designed to introduce attorneys to mindfulness and meditation through hands-on, experiential exercises. We’ll discuss how simple mindfulness practices can decrease stress while increasing calm and sense of well-being. At the end of the first session, each attorney will come up with his or her own plan for incorporating mindfulness and self-care practices into his or her daily life.

Each week, attendees will receive a reminder email, including a short (0.1 hour) guided meditation, wellness tips, and practical ways of working with stress and anxiety while increasing focus and concentration.

Midway through the program (sometime during week 4 to 6), attendees will have an opportunity to attend a second session. This session will offer additional instructions and will also discuss topics including understanding how the mind works, decreasing distraction, and working with unproductive or negative thoughts. We’ll also debrief and make any adjustments to daily self-care and mindfulness practices.
