February 10, 2019

Simmons A & B, Tepper Quadrangle

In this talk, Dennis will take us on a very personal rollercoaster ride of emotions as he explains how he recovered from the suicide deaths of both of his brothers. Dennis will discuss the warning signs of mental distress, the benefits of therapy, and how he found peace in sobriety. Using humor and personal story, Dennis has a message that is both real and relatable. This event is free and open to the CMU community.

How do you bring greater calm and clarity to solve challenging problems? How do you stay on target and find the energy to keep moving ahead? How do you create positive options where none seem present? Join us for a conversation with Jeremy Hunter, Ph.D., who serves as the Associate Professor of Practice and the Founding Director of the Executive Mind Leadership Institute at the Peter F. Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate University. His work redefines and enhances productivity by cultivating at quality of mind. He will define what is mindfulness and how we can utilize the practice in life and in our work. He has lived over 17 years with a potentially terminal illness, all while helping leaders relentlessly develop themselves while retaining their humanity in the face of monumental change and challenge.
