Full course description

This 12-week course focus on exploring the heartful qualities of mindfulness through practices that aim at developing the ability to be grateful, kind, compassionate, joyful, and peaceful. Starting on May 22nd and ending on August 7th, we will meet every Wednesday at 12 pm (Mountain Time) for one hour to go on a transformative learning journey to develop these heart qualities of mindfulness.

Although the word mindfulness in the Western cultures may lead to an association with the mind, mindfulness actually means presence of mind and heart. Essentially, to be mindful means to be heartful. You will learn a different exercise each week to practice it daily until the next meeting, then share and learn from each other's experiences and questions. The learning objective is to cultivate intention and attitude so you can meet your experiences with true mindfulness. This training was designed to create an incremental learning process that helps you develop these qualities of mindfulness in a smooth progression, while applying the exercises into your everyday life.

Creating community for mutual support is important for setting habit and a routine of practice. Thus, you will be encouraged to actively participate in the group. You can opt to join the class either online (through Zoom) or in person (IDRPP room 205), and you will have recordings of the exercise portion of the class every week to practice.
