Twelve Weeks to Mindfulness
Mastering Mindfulness, SWU 450, designed to reinforce and enable mastery of an ongoing mindfulness practice. Students will teach a mindfulness based lesson and develop a mindfulness based training proposal that will be evaluated and submitted for adoption by an non-profit organization, business, or community group.
Understanding mindfulness is not difficult, yet having the ability to practice in everyday life can be a challenge. Students will maintain a daily mindfulness practice using audio/visual materials as well as through readings. In addition, students will have the experience of teaching a mindfulness class and develop a training proposal giving students a skill that can be used in their personal or professional lives improving quality of life as well as training community groups.
Throughout the course, students will become proficient in learning the Mindful MAC Guide, and experience multiple types of mindfulness based interventions, learning an applicable model to teach in schools, health care settings and worksites.
