This four-week course provides a basic introduction to mindfulness and meditation, based on the Koru Mindfulness program developed at Duke University for emerging adults by psychiatrists Holly Rogers, MD and Margaret Maytan, MD. This evidence-informed curriculum invites you to learn ten practices for increasing the state we call “mindfulness” and reaping the benefits for your personal and professional life. If you are new to mindfulness and meditation, this basic course is a good first step into mindfulness and a good bridge to our ten-week Med 1 Beginning Meditation course. It can also serve as a refresher for those who already have a mindfulness practice.
Four 90-minute sessions, once a week
