Thrive to 25

What is mindfulness?



  1. the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something.
  2. a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.

The mindfulness program through the CTLL will help you become more aware of your state of mind. Mindfulness is an easily developed skill. Take an active stance on your own wellbeing and get ready to change your life.

Being Present Is Its Own Reward

The Center for Transformational Learning & Leadership offers a series of mindfulness programs designed to help WSU flourish. We incorporate elements of mindful living into every workshop, course, project, or initiative in which we are involved.

Mindfulness Symposium

Mindfulness skills can be taught through both direct teaching and through the use of examples. Past workshops have seen participants:

  • Understand the value and importance of mindfulness awareness practices
  • Experience mindfulness practices that can inform daily living
  • Be inspired and informed by WSU mindfulness-related research and opportunities
  • Access networking opportunities for like-minded individuals living on the Palouse

After a hiatus due to Covid, the Mindfulness Symposium will return in 2023. Look for more details soon.
