Mindful Methods – one-hour discussions, meditations or skill-teaching held periodically throughout the semester by members of the Appalachian Community

Mindful College Classroom learning community – organized in 2016-17 in conjunction with College STAR to enhance pedagogy for all learners

Book groups through Hubbard Programs for Academic Excellence, Still Point has led book groups on “Buddha’s Brain,” “Contemplative Practices in Higher Education” and other works

Collaborations with other units – presentations, workshops, meditations and other activities have been organized with Human Resources, Student Development, Belk Library and other campus units; Still Point members have led meditations for office retreats and other special events
