Koru OUTBreath for LGBTQ+ community

Join Kyle Trenshaw, assistant director for STEM education at the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and Buddhist chaplain at the Interfaith Chapel, for “Koru OUTBreath Edition for LGBTQ+ Folks,” beginning Mondays October 3 through October 24 at 7 p.m. EDT via Zoom. This course will teach strategies for fostering mindful resilience among a shared community and guide you to build the habit of using it in your daily life.

This class is intended for University staff, faculty, and students who hold minoritized identities of sexuality and gender (MIoSG), commonly referred to as LGBTQ+. There will be no adjustments to the course content, just the added sense of belonging that everyone in the space is a part of the MIoSG community (or a supportive ally). Registration is required to reserve your spot
