Eight-week experiential introduction to stress management and wellness through mindfulness-based practices. Students will increase their awareness of stress symptoms and will engage in activities designed to support a more responsive approach to stress coping. Emphasis will be placed on body scan techniques, sitting meditations, and mindful movement-, such as mindful walking and stretching. Students will also learn various strategies designed to enhance wellness through mindfulness in the everyday. The course requires a 5-hour guided mindfulness retreat facilitated by the instructor. The retreat is held on campus, on a Saturday; date TBD each semester.
