Academic Life: What has Mindfulness and Compassion Got To Do With It? (NCFDD Webinar)

Thursday, May 17, 2018
12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

So you've had your Sunday meeting; your appointments have been carefully plotted; and weekly writing/research/teaching goals are set. Yet somehow your life on paper and your academic life seem to rarely meet. This webinar will introduce how techniques in mindfulness and compassion could be the building blocks to further support locating more room in your calendar, more space in your being, and increased self-kindness to sustain your academic life.

In this webinar, participants will:

  • Define how mindfulness is critical as a foundational practice in academic life
  • Interpret how to use a 4-part definition of compassion to evaluate action steps in academic life
  • Evaluate how lovingkindness (versus self-criticism) is key in cultivating a healthy identity in academic life
  • Integrate mindfulness, compassion, and self-compassion as a cycle of self-kindness to sustain academic life
  • Develop a self-compassionate narrative when all else “fails” in academic life

Duke graduate students can access this webinar sponsored by the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity through Duke's institutional membership. Find information about how to claim your Duke membership to NCFDD here.
