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. This class is an 8-week class and requires in-person attendance on Friday, September 16th, 10-4 pm and Saturday, September 17th, 10am-4pm. All other class materials will be completed asynchronously online.
