Mon. Jan 14, 2019 - Tue. Apr 30, 2019 (16 weeks)
Every Wednesday from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
This course provides an introduction to mindfulness practices to facilitate coping with stress and to promote greater engagement with life. Mindfulness is bringing intentional non-judgmental awareness to what is happening in the present moment. Derived from the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program, this course is highly experiential and uses a lab or seminar-like format designed for college students to explore applications of mindfulness in mind-body awareness; mindful eating; verbal and non-verbal communication skills; and stress management.
