Principles of Clarity Weekend Retreat
Presented by Karen Dobkins Ph.D.
Professor of Psychology, UC San Diego
The Office of Postdoctoral and Visiting Scholar Affairs and Professor Karen Dobkins have partnered to offer UC San Diego postdocs a health and wellness retreat called Principles of Clarity (POC). This weekend workshop is based on principles from Mindfulness and Positive Psychology and focuses on improving your relationships, including with yourself. You will learn how to get straight to the heart of a matter, identify the issues, discriminate between real threats vs. the “stories” we tell ourselves, move away from “shoulds”, take responsibility for our choices and what we have brought to a negative situation, not go into “victim mentality”, communicate needs without being “needy”, bring love and openness to all situations, live wholeheartedly ….. without apology.

POC workshop was created and is led by Dr. Karen Dobkins, who got her PhD in Neurosciences and is now a professor in the Psychology Department at UC San Diego. Although her main area of research study has been brain development in children, her most recent research passion is in the area of mindfulness and mental well-being. Outside the world of research, she enjoys blending Mindfulness with her expertise in Psychology/Neuroscience to create workshops and environments aimed at improving well-being. In addition to teaching an exercise class called “IntenSati” that blends high intensity aerobics with call and response positive affirmations, she loves to give inspirational talks, including two recent Tedx talks “The Space between Kansas and Oz” and “If Passion Weren’t Scary it wouldn’t be Passion”.
