Section: A

CRN: 9116

Credits: 3

When we are fully present in the moment, we optimize our capacity for mindful engagement with ourselves and the world. This course introduces the art and science of mindfulness practice and explores how contemplative approaches can scaffold and undergird critical engagement in areas such as social and climate justice, place and belonging, our relationship with the natural environment, design, creativity, and leadership development. The course uses an experiential design to expose students to different mindfulness and contemplative practices. Through this training, we will learn how to cultivate attention and awareness that allows us to live all aspects of our lives with a great sense of skill, connection, openness, and balance. Please note that this class runs online for 7 weeks from August 31st to October 16th supported by a mandatory 2-day retreat on Friday, September 25 and Saturday, September, 26.
