Yin yoga is a slow-paced, passive type of yoga that incorporates long holds and stretching designed for deep contemplation and mind-body awareness. Yin yoga promotes sensory awakening that melts away tension and stress, and is known to release repressed or stored emotions. A tried and true technique to experience fascia and connective tissue release, Yin yoga is also an excellent practice for beginners because it offers plenty of time to uncover the unique benefits of individual poses without worrying about tricky transitions.

Practicing self care through mindfulness and meditation can help you relax and focus on what is most important - your overall wellness. This is a weekly, online wellness series hosted by the Utah State University Office of Health Equity and Community Engagement and Tribal & Rural Opioid Initiative Resource Center.

You must agree to attend all three sessions; you’ll have the same facilitator and group for each session. Registration for this event is now closed.

The first book will be: Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez. This is an awesome book, and the conversations will be enlightening. Sign up and plan to join us for this learning experience!

Mindfulness Meditation | Sitting in breath and presence

Recreation

FREE REGISTRATION: https://bit.ly/mindfulnessandmeditationweekly

Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress. Mindfulness meditation has been proven to support various health conditions - stress, anxiety, pain, depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, and more - and help you experience thoughts and emotions with greater balance and acceptance, improve attentiveness, and relieve burnout.

Practicing self care through mindfulness and meditation can help you relax and focus on what is most important - your overall wellness. This is a weekly, online wellness series hosted by the Utah State University Office of Health Equity and Community Engagement and Tribal & Rural Opioid Initiative Resource Center.

Strengthening Your Emotional Health as Women

Panel Discussion/Presentation

The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our fourth Fall Women’s Leadership Forum.

More than ever before, our emotional health as women is critical to being able to not just “get through” or “endure” the responsibilities of a myriad of life roles but be able to flourish and thrive. Challenges related to things like stress, exhaustion, perfectionism, depression, anxiety, and the feeling of not being “good enough” can halt your positive growth and development. Dr. Susan R. Madsen, founder of the Utah Women & Leadership Project, will moderate a lively and engaging panel of therapists, authors, and experts on this topic. Julie Hanks, Tiffany Roe, and Melanie Davis will discuss the overall components of emotional wellbeing, trends in women’s mental health, and many of the top challenges that women are facing today. They will share their professional insights on top strategies and tools that can help women move from enduring to thriving. We will integrate questions from the audience as well. All are welcome!

Critical Race Theory and Education: What Is Going On Here? (DMIT Sparkshop)

Workshop/Training | Learning Circles

Critical Race Theory started in legal studies back in the 1980s, but has recently made media headlines as a point of controversy. Republican-lead states have launched a full on attack of CRT, completely banning it from being discussed or taught in K-12 schools. Back in May, Utah Governor Spencer Cox asserted that "critical race theory should not be taught in Utah elementary, middle and high schools, but asserted the now controversial, yet difficult-to-define theory does belong in colleges and universities (KSL News)." This Sparkshop will define CRT, talk about its place in education, and help clarify misunderstandings surrounding the theory.

LAEP Speaker Series: Elizabeth Kennedy

Panel Discussion/Presentation

Elizabeth is the founder of Elizabeth Kennedy Landscape Architect, PLLC (EKLA). Black-owned and woman-run, EKLA is the longest-surviving such firm in the country. Its longevity is due to Elizabeth’s tenacity and her belief in the importance of service—to clients, community, her profession, and the process of design.

The work she directs quietly challenges mainstream assumptions about the aspirations and needs of underrepresented voices to counter the systems and biases that have long dispossessed the less powerful of spaces and rendered the people who use them invisible. Her best-known projects at the intersection of social justice and design exemplify landscape architecture’s potential to engage a broader critical understanding of place and identity. She built EKLA to highlight the heart of her clients’ stories and mission. From this perspective and standpoint, Elizabeth teaches, directs, critiques, frames, collaborates, and edits – in studio and national debate.

Arts/Entertainment

Recent and new collaborative works in drawing, printmaking, photography, and video by Angela Bartram and Lee Deigaard


The animal and being animal is a proposition and position that invites observational and critical debate. To observe the non-human animal is too often tense and politicized; to take on an understated what-it-is-to-be-animal is a sensitized and sensitive means to understand differing perspectives. Artists Lee Deigaard (USA) and Angela Bartram (UK) critically approach the animal as the animal. Using diverse methods and materials and curious to potentialities, they explore working as humans from an animal-centric perspective. They bring sensitivities to their handling of the animal as both artistic subject and collaborator, of behaving as animal, in order to observe and engage with empathy and openness to the unexpected, to animal insight and revelation. Iterative long term projects in drawing and printmaking foreground proximity and proprioceptive, nearly devotional studio and caretaking practices centering on respiration and companionate movement within a global pandemic. This exhibition explores the socialized and familiar in close observation, directly and indirectly, in their individual yet companion practices and additionally features the artists in conversation and active collaboration on site in the gallery.

Mindful Movement | Yin Yoga

Recreation

FREE REGISTRATION: https://bit.ly/mindfulnessandmeditationweekly

Yin yoga is a slow-paced, passive type of yoga that incorporates long holds and stretching designed for deep contemplation and mind-body awareness. Yin yoga promotes sensory awakening that melts away tension and stress, and is known to release repressed or stored emotions. A tried and true technique to experience fascia and connective tissue release, Yin yoga is also an excellent practice for beginners because it offers plenty of time to uncover the unique benefits of individual poses without worrying about tricky transitions.

Practicing self care through mindfulness and meditation can help you relax and focus on what is most important - your overall wellness. This is a weekly, online wellness series hosted by the Utah State University Office of Health Equity and Community Engagement and Tribal & Rural Opioid Initiative Resource Center.

Recent and new collaborative works in drawing, printmaking, photography, and video by Angela Bartram and Lee Deigaard


The animal and being animal is a proposition and position that invites observational and critical debate. To observe the non-human animal is too often tense and politicized; to take on an understated what-it-is-to-be-animal is a sensitized and sensitive means to understand differing perspectives. Artists Lee Deigaard (USA) and Angela Bartram (UK) critically approach the animal as the animal. Using diverse methods and materials and curious to potentialities, they explore working as humans from an animal-centric perspective. They bring sensitivities to their handling of the animal as both artistic subject and collaborator, of behaving as animal, in order to observe and engage with empathy and openness to the unexpected, to animal insight and revelation. Iterative long term projects in drawing and printmaking foreground proximity and proprioceptive, nearly devotional studio and caretaking practices centering on respiration and companionate movement within a global pandemic. This exhibition explores the socialized and familiar in close observation, directly and indirectly, in their individual yet companion practices and additionally features the artists in conversation and active collaboration on site in the gallery.

Re-Launching the Career Design Center

Workshop/Training | Seminar Series

Over the past year, the Career Design Center, formerly Career Services, has been very busy reimagining and redesigning career education at Utah State University. Based on national trends, research, data, feedback from the Utah State University (USU) community, and the workforce, changes were made to scale the Career Design Center's ability to reach all USU students. Career education is all of our responsibility - the future of the Career Design Center is to be a presence that is strategically integrated into the student academic experience, not just a brick-and-mortar location. Our goal is to collaborate with more and more faculty so we can more intentionally help students be a learner, but also prepare for their careers and successfully transition into the workforce. Helping students gain experience through opportunities such as internships gives students a stronger advantage in the job market upon graduation. The Career Design Center can provide more strategic career education to help students navigate the ever-changing workforce needs.
