    Session Description

    In this session, we will discuss how evidence-based mindfulness practices amplify the ability of educators and students to do antiracist work in the classroom. Participants will experience how these practices can ground us in intention and fortify our wellbeing, plan how to integrate mindfulness into their classrooms, and learn how mindfulness practices have been integrated into AUx student experiences. As we continue to teach in multiple concurrent crises, explore how centering mindfulness practices in our antiracist pedagogy positions faculty to successfully co-create classroom communities that advance justice and equity.
