This course provides an introduction to mindfulness practices to facilitate coping with stress and greater engagement with life. Mindfulness involves bringing intentional non-judgmental awareness to what is happening in the present moment. Based on the popular 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, communication skills and stress management.
 
This class has three sections in which first-year students may enroll:
ELA 1559-003 - Mondays 2-4PM
