Mindfulness Mondays - Special Edition

  • Morrison Foerster Room, 298 Simon Hall 225 Bancroft Way Berkeley, CA United States (map)


In the Warren Room, lunch served.

Join family law attorney and mediator Emily Doskow, a Berkeley Law alum, to learn about the personal and professional benefits of mindfulness in connection with law school and lawyering. The program will include lunch, listening, and trying out some meditation. This event is perfect for first-timers, as well as more experienced meditators.

Emily Doskow has been practicing family law in the Bay Area since 1989. In addition to her work as an attorney and mediator, Emily has been practicing mindfulness meditation for over 18 years and is the owner of Mindfulness Over Matters, providing training, coaching, and support for mindful law practice.  Emily has taught mindfulness to law students at JFK University Law School, as well as to attorneys at the Alameda County Bar Association, the Family Violence Law Center, Continuing Education of the Bar, and Spirit Rock Meditation Center.

—Regular Event description—

Law school and the legal profession are stressful. Mindfulness can be an essential tool to manage that stress and to be a better advocate! Join us as we learn together how pausing to breathe can improve our personal and professional lives. 

No experience is necessary! Even if you’ve never meditated before or think you’re “bad” at meditation, join us! The purpose of our Mindfulness community is to support others wherever they’re at.

Each Monday (except holidays), we’ll roughly follow this schedule:

1:00-1:20pm Eat Lunch and Chat

1:20-1:40pm Meditation Practice

1:40-2:00pm Discussion of Practice

Sometimes we’ll have special guests (i.e., local legal practitioners) to lead our sits. Most often, it’ll be led by students, staff, or faculty! 

So bring your lunch and get mindful. All are welcome-students, visiting scholars, faculty, staff.
