Advising & Leading Josephson (1988) argues that ethical academic advising is based on similar relationships characterized by trust, worthy objectives and student development (as cited by Frank in Gordon, 2000). The Core Values of NACADA as cited by Creamer in Gordon (2000) relate to all three of these points. The Core Values stress the purpose of academic advising, which is student learning and personal development.

The focus of advising is the student as a whole, encompassing the students educational life as well as future plans after graduation (Creamer, 2000). Nutt argues that academic advising at its very best is a supportive and interactive relationship between students and advisors built on shared communication (Nutt in Gordon, 2000).

Attention What we pay attention to changes the brain Intention Attitude Attention Mindfulness is Excellent Education

William James, the father of modern psychology, had this to say: And the faculty of voluntarily bringing back a wandering attention over and over again is the very root of judgment, character, and will. No one is compos sui (competent) if he have it not. An education which should improve

this faculty would be the education par excellence James, Principles of Psychology, Chap 11 http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/James/Principles/prin11.htm http://www.mindfulness-matters.org/what-is-mindfulness/

The effective interaction between advisor and student is very important to the individual growth and success of students (Kramer, as cited in Gordon, 2000). Nutt writes, "Academic Advising is the only structured activity on the campus in which all students have the opportunity for oneto-one interaction with a concerned representative of the institution (Habley, 1994)

THE WORLD Joseph Croskey [email protected] 814-673-3686 Trying a Short Mindfulness Meditation Your capacity to be mindful is most powerfully developed through mindfulness

meditation. One of the most popular mindfulness meditations is mindfulness of breath. This involves being mindfully aware of your breath. Follow these steps to try mindfulness meditation out for yourself: 1. Be aware of the sense of your own breathing. You dont need to change the rate of your breath. Just feel the physical sensation of your breath entering and leaving the body. 2. You can feel the breath in the nose, the throat, the chest or down in your belly. If possible, try and feel the breath in the belly as its more grounding

and is more likely to make you feel relaxed. 3. When your mind wonders off into thoughts, bring your attention back. It is the nature of thoughts to take your attention away from whatever you want to focus on, and into thoughts about the past or future, worries or dreams. Dont worry about it. 4. As soon as you realise that youve been thinking about something else, notice what you were thinking about, and gently guide your attention back to your breath. You dont need to criticise yourself.

Thats it. Mindfulness of breath is as simple as that. Bring a sense of the mindful attitudes to your experience such as curiosity, kindness and acceptance. You can do this exercise for as short as a minute, or as long as an hour. References George, B. (2010). True north: Discover your authentic leadership (Vol. 143).
