Your generosity to the Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience promotes the power of mindful living to advance well-being and engagement.
Support to the Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience provides opportunities for students and faculty to advance mindfulness research, establish key partnerships in the community, and provide outlets for members of the community to experience mindfulness to better their health and well-being. For example, one of the many opportunities available through the center is an annual event known as ""Puppies in the Park"" in partnership with the Arizona Humane Society. This event provides students, faculty and staff the opportunity to de-stress through interacting with dogs. The event gives participants the opportunity to be mindful and focus on the present moment since dogs have a natural capacity to open up to each moment as it unfolds. Spending time with dogs also lowers blood pressure, relaxes muscle tension, reduces stress hormones, such as cortisol, and improves mood and happiness by changing brain chemistry. Because of you, the Center for Mindfulness, Compassion and Resilience is able to lead the university and the community in advancing mindfulness and compassionate practices, which ultimately result in providing purpose, focus, resilience and connection.
