Spotlight Values at Pace University, New York


Spotlight Values with the help of the Pace University Resident Advisor staff brought the OM Café to the Clark Residence Lounge on April 20th 2011. After enjoying some delicious pasta salad and salsa graciously prepared by our guests we dimmed the lights and students settled in for the Spotlight Values presentation. As a group we did a warm up to get to know each other a bit better and understand what important values each of us recognize within ourselves. We broke into small groups to explore the value of courage and what it truly means to be courageous. My group discussed the ideas of standing up for what you believe in even if it is unpopular and doing things that while they may seem scary at the moment will ultimately help you learn and grow. A few people shared some inspiring stories of when they showed courage in the face of great obstacles and personal challenges. The OM Café also provided entertainment with two talented artists singing a Whitney Houston song that dealt with having courage when times are tough. We ended the event by creating Haikus that dealt with our feelings on the value of courage and enjoyed some relaxing guided reflection. In the end everyone left feeling relaxed, inspired and for some who won raffle prizes quite lucky!
