Second, we are offering a workshop addressing academic success.  It is titled PACE: Positive Academic Change and Exploration.  This workshop will help participants explore their attitude about academics and identify way to overcome obstacles to personal academic success.  This could be an excellent recommendation for anybody who seeks to improve their academic performance and especially those on academic probation.  It meets on Tuesdays at 1 pm.

Last,  we are offering a Body-Esteem Boot Camp on Thursdays 9/19-10/24 from 3-4:30 pm.   Here is what the facilitator would like you to know about it.  “CAPS will be offering a FREE 6-week workshop series to increase positive body image: BODY ESTEEM BOOT CAMP (BEBC)! This series was originally created by Dr. Katie Cougevan at UC Davis Counseling and Psychological Services.  I facilitated this series at UC Davis, and with her permission I offered this series at California State University, Northridge.  It was a great success on both campuses.  Thus, I am excited to share it now with IU students!

Body Esteem Boot Camp (click to open flier)

Here is a snapshot of the series: Each week, I will present a topic that I use as a springboard to generate hopefully an active, thoughtful discussion intermixed with experiential exercises.  Some examples include: Week 2 we will learn ways to be critical media viewers and week 4, we will practice mindfulness of our body, thoughts, and feelings through visualization, mindful eating. etc.  I have found that this space can be an excellent starting point for students to explore their relationship with self and others and for some, when appropriate, a nice entry way to an interpersonal process-oriented therapy group like Nourish: The Body and the Self also offered at CAPS and co-facilitated by Andrea Maltese, LCSW and me. “

 

“Ideally a student will commit to participate in all six workshops in order to maximize benefit from the series and to build connections with participants given there tends to be a cohort of students who attend all sessions.  However, students may certainly drop in for any week.  Attached is a ½ sheet size flyer for BEBC.  I have both ½ and ¼ sheet size flyers to distribute.  Please forward the flyer to anyone who may be interested and/or who has contact with students who may be interested.  Thank you!”

 

Start Date: September 19th

End Date: October 24th

Day and Time: Thursdays 3-4:30pm

Where: CAPS

* This series is open to all genders and both undergrads and grad students.

 

Topics by Week:

Week 1: Defining Body Esteem

Week 2: Talk Back to Media

Week 3: Defining Ourselves: Family and Cultural Perceptions

Week 4: Mindfulness: Increasing Awareness

March 19, 2013 Tibetan Studies Lecture

Tibetan Studies Student Association Lecture Series Presents

Dr. Roberto Vitali

 Roberto Vitali-flyer

Karma Exhausted:
The Role of Tibetans and Mongols

In High Asia’s Most Traumatic Event of the 13th Century

Distinguished Alumni Room, IMU

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 (10:00 AM – 12:00 PM)

There is hardly any event in the lands that constitute the Tibetan plateau during the 13th century and perhaps at any time in the history of the country that was as distressing as the ‘Bri gung gling log, the clash that culminated in the destruction of ‘Bri gung monastery. While the incident has not been forgotten in the relevant literature, owing to the magnitude of the tragedy, the religious and political circumstances that led to it have been swept under the carpet, so to speak, as if any reference to the burning of the monastery could only be mentioned with a sense of shame. By collating sources, I propose here a reconstruction of the main actors, the reasons that led to a dramatic escalation of hostility, the unfolding conflict, its subsequent developments and an historical assessment of the affair.

Dr. Vitali pursues his studies on the historical literature of ancient Tibet, sharing his research with scholars of the diaspora communities in the Himalaya. He works with the Amnye Machen Institute, Tibetan Center for Advanced Studies; the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives (Dharamshala); the Centre for Nepal and Asian Studies (Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu); and the Namgyal Institute of Tibetology (Gangtok, Sikkim). He has authored Early Temples of Central Tibet, The Kingdoms of Gu ge Pu hrang, Records of Tho ling, A Short History of Mustang, The dGe lugs pa in Gu ge and the Himalaya, and other books and articles.
