March 27, 2017 at 10:22 am

Learn how to reduce the stress and the end-of-semester strain during “Deep Dive into the River Within,” April 6-7.

Sponsored by the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies, USC Beaufort’s Dr. Deborah Cohan will guide us through a two-part seminar focusing on self-care techniques described by Abby Seixas in “Finding the Deep River Within: A Woman’s Guide to Recovering Balance and Meaning in Everyday Life.”

The first session will be held from 3 – 5 p.m. Thursday, April 6 in the John M. Rampey Center, Room 125. Dr. Cohan will present, “A Refreshing Dip,” an overview and refresher of the Deep River Within concepts and explore ways for reducing stress during the end of semester strain.

The second session will be held from 1:30 – 4 p.m. Friday, April 7, also in Room 125. Dr. Cohan will present “Deep Dive,” and provide tips on guided meditation, self-care and relaxation. Healthy snacks will be provided at 1:30 p.m. with session to follow.

Cohan has 20 years of experience teaching sociology, women’s and gender studies and family studies and currently is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at USC Beaufort. For more information about the Deep River, please go to

Due to the intensive nature of the workshops, participants are asked to be present for the whole two hours each time rather than dropping in for parts of them and to wear comfortable clothing.

These events are made possible by funding from the Office of Student Affairs. Questions? Contact Dr. Lisa Johnson at Please RSVP to Kristina Pisano by March 31 at
