The Gifts of Imperfection: Practices for Imperfect People

Looking for a way to start the new year?

Wanting to focus on self-reflection and spirituality in a supportive and safe space?

UH Wellness and UH Canterbury (the campus Episcopal Campus Ministry) are excited to be launching a four part book discussion series based on Dr. Brene Brown’s book “The Gifts of Imperfection” to begin in February.  In this work, Brown encourages readers to explore how we can cultivate courage, compassion, and connection on a daily basis as a way to improve our lives and embrace that not being perfect is perfectly acceptable!  The series, called The Gifts of Imperfection: Practices for Imperfect People will center on discussion of the major themes of the book, along with development of practices that participants can use in their daily lives.

Participation is open to any UH undergraduate or graduate student, and all participants will receive a FREE copy of the book along with dinner at each discussion group.  Our discussion group will meet Wednesdays from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the Impact Room in the Student Center North, which is within the student organization carrel space.  Meeting dates are as follows: February 7th, February 14th, February 21st and February 28th

Pre-registration is required.
