Mindfulness for the Body, Feelings, Emotions, and Thinking Patterns

Mindfulness practices are well-researched as helping to decrease stress and anxiety, and to increase immune functioning, relationship satisfaction, and an overall sense of well-being. They are also a resource for spirituality. This class will provide skill-building practices for mindfulness - so that you can personally grow in ways that empower you to engage everyday life with more energy, grace, and peace.

ISHI Director

Dr. Rebecca Letterman

Dr. Letterman began her formal Christian spiritual formation studies in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with Dr. Adrian van Kaam, founder of the field of Formative Spirituality, and his colleague Dr. Susan Muto. After completing an Advanced Certification Program in Formative Spirituality, Dr. Letterman served at the academy as an adjunct teacher in the program and recently coauthored with Dr. Muto a basic introduction to van Kaam’s work. Dr. Letterman’s vocation focuses on bridging formative faith traditions – whether across time or across cultures – in order to foster respect for diversity, while at the same time nurturing unity among Judeo-Christian faith communities that are seeking to live in vital relationship with God, one another, and the wider world.
