Changing the Narrative (Feb. 28)

Marywood University will hold its inaugural workshop series titled, “Changing the Narrative,” an initiative focused on addressing issues around equity and inclusion in higher education and in the community, on Friday, February 28, 2020, from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m., at various locations on campus. The workshop series will challenge our views on race, ethnicity, gender identification, and disability through the lens of intersectionality (the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group). The workshop will focus on our own narratives or beliefs about the world, and having the courage to engage with the narratives of others to help us to understand, grow, and develop from the experience. This event is free and open to the public.

Register for the "Changing the Narrative" Workshop...

Labyrinth Walk in the Rotunda (Feb. 17-24)

The labyrinth will be available in the Rotunda for use by the Marywood community, from Feb. 17 - 24. This labyrinth is a replica of the famous Chartres Cathedral labyrinth inlaid in the stone floor of the Cathedral in approximately 1210. Walking the labyrinth is an ancient spiritual practice used since the Middle Ages as a symbolic pilgrimage. In our modern day context, the labyrinth is a spiritual tool for meditation helping us to look within for answers we need. The path of the labyrinth serves as a metaphor for one’s spiritual journey which we walk individually and in harmony with each other. The opening or starting point for the labyrinth is near the front entrance to the Rotunda.

Eating Disorders Screening Day (Feb. 27)

The Psychological Services Center is hosting a free and confidential Eating Disorders Screening Day on Thursday, Feb. 27, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. All are welcome and no appointments are necessary. This day allows individuals to discuss with a student-therapist any symptoms or concerns related to food, body image, and weight that they may be experiencing. The screening day is designed to bring awareness and assistance to those who may be suffering in silence and will provide appropriate resources and referrals. If you are interested in participating, stop by the McGowan Center to complete the screening questionnaire, speak to a student-therapist, and receive free educational materials.
