History Happy Hour: The Mindfulness Movement

When: Thu., March 28, 6:30-8 p.m. 2019

“Mindfulness” is a huge buzzword in today’s culture, but do we really understand what it means? Covering topics such as transcendentalism, hippie counterculture, new age spiritual cults, and the present-day corporatization and commercialization of meditation practices, we will explore various aspects of the historical roots of mindfulness in the United States and how it has evolved over time. Drinks and mingling are followed by an hour-long class and discussion.
