Ever finish reading an article and realize you can’t remember much of what you just read? You’re not alone, particularly if you spend a lot of time online. Studies show that we read online materials faster and in a way that is more shallow than we read print. Studies also show that mindful meditation can help slow down our minds and increase our ability to focus. In Mindful Reading we apply mindfulness techniques to reading with the goal of training ourselves to read in a deeper way.

In the drop-in sessions we learn to:

  • Understand how our mindset influences how to read
  • Learn mindfulness strategies to increase our focus
  • Use self-compassion meditation to build our confidence as readers

Date: Every Monday, from November 1 until December 6, 2021
Time: 1pm - 4:30pm. Drop in at any point during this time to learn about and practice the techniques.
Place: Room 8051 (across from the elevators), 8th floor, Robarts Library 

Sessions are drop-in, no registration required. Please note that the room has a capacity limit of 7 people.

Any questions? Please contact Dan D'Agostino
