The Haverford School’s Best for Boys Speaker Series welcomes Dr. Michael Baime, one of the country’s foremost experts on mindfulness and the science that supports it.
We live in anxious times. Our social world is increasingly fragmented, and there is continual pressure to do more and to be better. Our boys are not immune to these stresses. Dr. Baime will review the science behind mindfulness, lead a brief mindfulness practice, engage participants in a listening exercise, and arm parents with tools to help their children achieve balance between who they are and who they strive to be.
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 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.
The Haverford School's Best for Boys speaker series invites the community to learn about topics and practices that help foster the social, emotional, and academic growth of young boys.
The events are free and open to the public.
An Evening with Michael Baime will be held in Ball Auditorium, located on the lower level of Wilson Hall.
The Haverford School is located at 450 Lancaster Avenue in Haverford, PA.
