We do our work as lawyers in relationship to ourselves and other people. How do we want to show up in those relationships? What boundaries do we need to set in order to care for our own well-being?
In this course we will use techniques from mindfulness practice to cultivate inner steadiness, resilience, and compassion for ourselves and others. Through mindfulness practice and inquiry, we will explore the impact of barriers to belonging in the legal profession such as systemic racism and marginalization along other identity axes. We will also look at how we might use mindfulness and self-reflection to counter the effects of impostor phenomenon and the inner critic.
