Mindfulness as a Support for Healing Conversations and Actions Toward Social Justice and Equity

Upcoming Event


Rhonda V. Magee, J.D., professor of law, long-time mindfulness teacher, scholar of contemplative education, and practitioner of mindfulness, will deliver the 2021 Stephen E. Straus Distinguished Lecture in the Science of Complementary Therapies. Professor Magee will describe some of the research on how mindfulness has been shown to help us, for example, increase our emotional resilience; address fears, anxieties, and other emotions; choose how we will respond to injustice; and change unhelpful habits. She will also discuss an exciting new area of study: focusing on external mindfulness and its effects as individuals interact with others, their environments, and the array of challenges facing us all. 


Rhonda V. Magee, J.D., is a full professor of law at the University of San Francisco (USF) School of Law and a longtime mindfulness teacher, scholar of contemplative education, and scholar of mindfulness from multiple traditions.
