Mindful Kala

February 11, 2021

Are you hoping to start or reconnect with a meditation practice? Want to learn more about one of the world’s oldest art forms? If so, join Mindful Kala!

Mindful Kala is a virtual Good Life Center program and research study that integrates Bharatanatyam (i.e. Indian Classical Dance) with mindfulness. Over the course of four sessions on Mondays from 5:30-6:30 pm EST, students will encounter different components of Bharatanatyam through activities such as physical movement, meditative exercises, theatrical creations, group discussions, writing, and storytelling. 

Participants will be randomly assigned to attend either Session One or Session Two. In order to register, you must be able to attend programming from 5:30-6:30 pm EST on all of the following dates: 

  • Session One: 2/21, 3/1, 3/8, 3/15

***Note that 2/21 is a Sunday – we will not host any Good Life Center programming on Monday 2/22 because it is a Break Day

  • Session Two: 3/22, 3/29, 4/5, 4/12

Sign up here!

Students who attend all four sessions and complete all survey items will receive a free Good Life Center T-shirt and beanie. Sign ups close at 11:59 pm EST on Friday, February 19th. All video camera settings (on/off) are welcome and participants will be invited to interact with one another through breakout rooms (ice-breakers provided). 

Mindful Kala is an undergraduate-initiated research study by Shruti Parthasarathy (‘24), Dr. Laurie Santos, Dr. Elizabeth Goldfarb, and Alexa Vaghenas through the Good Life Center.
