    with Frank Sileo, PhD

    Wednesday, April 5 | 7-8:30pm
    Book Signing | 6:30pm
    Alumni Lounges/Student Center rooms 156-158

    In our increasingly hectic and demanding world, we can find ourselves struggling with feelings of stress and anxiety. The pressures of school, parenting, work and life in general, contribute to making anxiety disorders in children and adults more widespread.  Join Dr. Sileo as he discusses the types and prevalence of anxiety disorders in children and adults.  He will provide an introduction to mindfulness, practical strategies that can be of great benefit in reducing stress and anxiety, and how to boost natural healing.

    Dr. Sileo will engage the audience in some mindfulness exercises that will help cultivate a mindful way of being. A question and answer session will follow.

    This lecture is geared toward adults and older students, but there will be a book signing of Dr. Sileo’s children’s book A World of Pausabilities: An Exercise in Mindfulness (available for purchase), before the lecture.

    Location: Student Center Lounges, Ramapo College
    Cost: $15

    About Dr. Sileo's Book - A World of Pausabilities

    A World of Pausabilities: An Exercise in Mindfulness

    Written by: Frank J. Sileo, PhD
    Illustrated by: Jennifer Zivoin
    Published by: Magination Press


    This is a rhyming guide that introduces children to mindfulness and shows them how to live mindfully by taking pauses in their lives. Pausabilities encourage children to take a breath and be present and pay attention to their thoughts, feelings, sensations, and the world around them. A World of Pausabilities reminds children that everyone can be mindful and that there is no wrong way to take a pause. Includes a “Note to Parents and Caregivers” by the author which explains mindfulness and provides tips for implementing pausabilities in their children’s lives.
