Mindfulness Fundamentals

Develop a personal mindfulness practice to deepen
self-awareness and increase well-being.

About this course

Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment. It is also a set of techniques and methods for systematically developing this awareness. The practice of mindful awareness has a variety of well-documented impacts, including a reduction in toxic stress, an increase in emotion regulation, and an improvement in sustained attention, focus and executive functioning. The central objective of the course is for participants to have the tools necessary to continue their mindfulness practice after the course completes.

In this six-week self-paced online class, you will learn:

  • The basics of mindfulness meditation
  • How to work with thinking that arises while practicing mindfulness
  • Techniques for meeting and navigating intense emotions
  • Practices that cultivate positive states of mind like gratitude, kindness, joy & compassion
  • The role mindfulness plays in communication and interaction
  • Support for developing a daily sitting practice
