About the Lecture Series

Hadrien Coumans

Hadrien Coumans (bio)—co-founder, co-director of Lenape Center of New York City and Advisor for Wellbeing—will discuss wellbeing practices drawn from a range of contemporary Indigenous cultures. In the Original Wellbeing Lecture Series, students will learn about restorative practices that are understood from the experiences of living people in real-life situations. This will help to create a “knowing” to support participants emerge as more connected, informed, courageous, compassionate individuals.

The first in a three-part series, the topic of this lecture will be EMERGENCE AND SUBMERGENCE.
Additional lectures in the series include:

Original Wellbeing is created with the blessing, vetting, and approval of Joe Baker, Lenape elder and executive director of Lenape Center. The three-part series is supported by the Lucille N. Austin Lecture Fund, which was made possible by a generous contribution in memory of Jane R. Heimerdinger and by a grant by the Kenworthy-Swift Foundation.

Sponsored by the Advanced Generalist Practice & Programming Caucus and the Professional Development & Self-Awareness Program.
