Introduction to Mindfulness

GENINT 711.344

Osher (50+). This course introduces awareness techniques to center and quiet the mind.


About this course:

Mindfulness training allows us to cultivate our natural capacity for greeting life with a wise and open heart, enhancing our ability to live with more joy, purpose and satisfaction. With mindfulness, it’s easier to deal with life’s challenges and surprises with less fear, anger and disappointment. Integrating Buddhist and Western approaches with current science, you are introduced to methods for calming the inner storms of thoughts and emotions. Paradoxically, by learning how to remain curious and emotionally open to all your experiences, positive and negative, mind and body can quiet. This supports states of clarity, deeper awareness of your authentic core and creative choices and possibilities in your life.
