Overview

Find peace, balance, focus, and well-being in the midst of everyday pressures of college life.

An 8-week, small group curriculum designed to teach psychosocial skills and help students build resiliency and foster mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being using mindfulness techniques.

Based on current research, The Awakened Life will equip chaplains, college ministers, and spiritual leaders to help students be more present and navigate emotional disturbance with equanimity by incorporating these mindful practices into their daily lives. Research demonstrates that mindfulness practices contribute to improved mood, concentration, and relationships; and with its rich contemplative history, religious faith has much to add to the conversation.

Using up-to-date research, this book offers age-appropriate mindfulness practices. It gives chaplains, college ministers, and spiritual leaders tools to help students navigate the pressures of college living, and it offers students concrete practices to address typical anxieties and pressures related to college life.
