Past Event

Mindfulness, Emotional Segregation and Connecting Across Difference

February 14, 2024
12:10 PM - 1:00 PM
Columbia Law School, 435 W. 116 St., New York, NY 10027 103

Connecting across difference has rarely been more important or more difficult. It is possible to be right next to someone physically, witness the same set of events, and yet having a completely different response, emotionally and otherwise. Mindfulness practices can help us to appreciate the uniqueness (and sometimes even strangeness) of our experience and enhance our capacity to empathize with the experience of others. Please join Profs. Elizabeth EmensKendall Thomas and Columbia Law students as they discuss the role of mindfulness in their lives, work and research. Professor Kathryn Judge will moderate. 

This is a special event, co-sponsored by the CLS Mindfulness ProgramStudent Services and the Vice Dean for Intellectual Life. Any member of the CU community is welcome to join, but we ask that anyone outside the law school register here at least 48 hours in advance. Lunch will be provided.  

This event is part of the Dialogue Across Difference initiative supported by the Office of the Provost.
