Towards a Mindful Practice in Library Work
An Infopeople Webinar
Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM
Presenters: Mimosa Shah and Beck Tench
In this webinar, you will learn about mindfulness from a practitioner (Mimosa Shah) and a scholar (Beck Tench) who have spent the last five years collaborating on how to practice mindfulness in libraries with integrity and resilience. We will move beyond the common understandings and examples of mindfulness, looking from both a critical and optimistic points-of-view. We will discuss what mindfulness is, why we might practice it, and how to do so, with a special focus on library-specific issues.
At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:
- Understand the mindfulness movement across history and wisdom traditions
- Understand the varied reasons why we might practice mindfulness and what the consequences of those practices might be
- Gain exposure to the wide range of mindfulness activities, including ideas about how to create their own
- Consider mindfulness from scholarly and practitioner perspectives
This webinar will be of interest to: all library workers that have a curiosity/tendency towards mindfulness.
