Best for Boys Speaker Series: Michael Baime
Best for Boys Speaker Series: Michael Baime

"The question isn't what can I do for my boys, it's who can I be for my boys," says Michael Baime, one of the country's foremost experts on mindfulness and director of the mindfulness program at Penn Medicine.

On Thursday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. in Ball Auditorium, Baime will discuss the science behind mindfulness, the role of mindfulness in managing stress, and provide tips on how to settle into the present moment. He will lead a guided sitting meditation as well as a communications exercise.

Many of us are suffering from a constricted spirit. Our time-pressured sense of urgency and the number of tasks that demand our attention lead us to lose sight of what truly matters. Mindfulness helps us to remember what matters most, and gives us practical tools that help us to live a more connected, heartfelt, and intentional life.

Baime is a Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of medicine and founder and director of the Penn Program for Mindfulness. He is the recipient of the Provost's Award for Distinguished Teaching at the University of Pennsylvania and the 2016 Award for Distinguished Contributions in Behavioral Medicine from the American College of Physicians. He earned a B.A. from Haverford College and an M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.

This event is presented as part of The Haverford School's Best for Boys Speaker Series. It is free and open to the public. Register today at
