Fall 2019: Climbing as Mindfulness — KINE 1450


Tue. Aug 27, 2019 - Fri. Dec 6, 2019 (15 weeks)
Every Tuesday, Thursday from 12:30 PM to 1:45 PM



Climbing is one of many possible goal-driven activities that have 'flow'' potential. The course explores climbing as a tool for engaging the body in the flow of the mind and vice versa and its contribution to heightened body/mind awareness without formal 'meditation'. Discovering such body/mind engagement through a concrete, stimulating activity can transfer to other domains (such as academic success and overall resilience).
