GMIND 6042 Mindfulness: Practice, Theory, and Science

This course engages students in the theory and practice of mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness draws on the wisdom of our minds and bodies to develop calm, concentration, and insight. Students engage in several forms of mindfulness practice, and discuss related literature, including studies reporting on potential benefits of practice to improve health, to enhance overall well-being, and to promote neuroplasticity. Students focus on the application of these practices in their daily, academic, and/or professional lives.
