Mindfulness meditation is a technique of focus, calm and insight, and a skill that can be learned. Through this four-week mindfulness training course participants will observe how stress unfolds in their lives, their responses to it, and how mindfulness practice can ameliorate it. Participants will learn and practice a variety of mindfulness techniques on an entry level, including loving-kindness meditation and mindful movement. Alongside the meditation practice, classes incorporate group discussions.
Classes meet Tuesdays, November 21, November 28, December 5, and December 12, 2017.
There is a $50 enrollment fee for the full course. There is a minimum enrollment of 10 and a maximum enrollment of 20 people. Participants will need to bring a mat or towel for the training program. This program is limited to Columbia faculty and staff.
