26 Gibbs Street, Rochester, NY 14604


Mindfulness, by definition, is the act of paying attention to the present moment with non-judgmental awareness. Mindfulness is more than sitting quietly - how can you use the tools of mindfulness to enhance your performance? to become less self-critical? have a more creative practice? or to concentrate better when practicing? In this workshop, you will learn the benefits of mindfulness practice for well-being and performance quality, how you can integrate it into your day / your practice sessions, as well as have the opportunity to practice a short guided visualization that you can add to your toolbox. 

As a Health Educator, Rebecca Block oversees the strategic planning, implementation, and evaluation of health promotion programs for University of Rochester students.

In addition, Rebecca is the Program Director of the Mindful University Project where she works closely with the 7 schools of the University, as well as a variety of administrative departments, to integrate a culture of mindfulness across the campus. 

Rebecca holds a BA in Health, Behavior and Society from the University of Rochester and an MS in Community Health Education from Teachers College, Columbia University.
