Mindfulness, Meditation, and Health:
This course is experiential. Students learn about and discuss the origin of mindfulness and its applications in medicine, healthcare, and society. Learn and be supported in the development of a mindfulness practice, utilizing the modality as a tool for stress management, self awareness, and self efficacy. Students are encouraged to transform their minds and bodies with intentional focus, utilizing mindfulness in everyday life both as a complementary healing modality and as a meditation practice.
Mindfulness recognizes the potential of human beings to self-regulate while optimizing their physical, emotional and spiritual health. It is the ability to have non-judgmental awareness of events as they unfold moment by moment. Mindfulness is a fundamental and ancient component of many Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. In recent years, research has demonstrated the use of mindfulness in the treatment of medical conditions, mental disorders, and as a viable approach to healthcare and education in the workplace.
The practice is open to beginning and advanced practitioners.
