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 final lecture in a three-part series, this session’s topic will be HEART AND HEALING.

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.
