EIU Mindfulness Club
This registered student organization (RSO) offers free weekly meditation sessions and mindfulness discussions at the student union, which serve as our introductory Daata Mindfulness 1.0 program. Meetings are open to all students, faculty, and community members.
Events & Initiatives:
Every semester during finals week since Fall 2016, EIU Mindfulness Club teams up with the university to participate in campus-wide de-stressing activities. Our club offers several, brief meditation sessions where students can drop by, learn a simple mindfulness technique, and recharge for finals!
Collegiate Recovery Student Association-
Mindfulness Club presented the tool of meditation and introduced the concept of mindfulness to students on the path to recovery from addictions.
Mindfulness Club was invited to present at EIU Cares. This event focused on the mental and emotional well-being of college students.
Student Education Association-
Mindfulness Club teamed up with the Student Education Association to teach education majors how mindfulness can be incorporated and valuable in education. MHE believes it is significant not only to teach students about the advantages of mindfulness, but also tomorrow's educators.
We regularly team up with the EIU business department's MBA Association to host free events focusing on mindfulness in the business world. MHE recognizes that many students' goals are to use their college degree to secure a career, so EIU Mindfulness Club aims to provide business students with the tools to live mindfully even after graduation.
Similar to the concept of a food pantry, Fruit Pantry is a weekly event where members hand out free, fresh fruit on campus. Regardless of socioeconomic status, students, faculty, and community members are welcome to grab free fruit between classes on specified dates. Providing a healthy, free snack to people is one way EIU Mindfulness Club puts compassion into action!
