Reflective space: The medical library as a mindfulness sanctuary. In Peterkin, A & Brett-MacLean, P (Eds.), Keeping Reflection Fresh: A Practical Guide for Clinical Educators. Kent, Ohio: Kent State University Press, 2016 How to Cite?
AbstractLike their fellow medical students around the world, at the University of Hong Kong (HKU), medical students’ minds are also occupied with acronyms for differential diagnoses, timetables, lunch plans, their Facebook pages, and the incessant inner chatter that clutter minds. Mindfulness is an increasingly evidence-based approach to de-cluttering of the mind, bringing about present moment awareness, and enabling attention in difficult situations. It can be practiced in any setting but is best facilitated in a physical space that mirrors the peace and calm being sought. Thus, the natural coupling of a deliberately designated reflective space in the library for such practice is presented as a fresh approach to reflection.
