This course will give participants knowledge and skills in the practice of mindful awareness. Time will be devoted to learning how to care for yourself and others through the many facets of mindfulness practice (drawing from the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction curriculum) and its direct implication and impact in living a more sane life. Mindfulness is based on an understanding that life is mixed, having magnificent moments, and moments of challenge and disappointment. What is important is the way in which we meet the moments of our lives, with as much as ease as possible. No prior mindfulness experience is required. Participants will also learn about mindfulness supports and resources for staff and students in MMSD.
Course sessions: July 10 9 AM to 12 PM, July 12 9 AM to 12 PM, July 13, 9 AM to 1 PM
