A Koru (Māori for “loop”) is a spiral-shaped fern frond symbolic for balanced growth and stability. The class, entitled simply “Koru”, offers students an evidence-based introduction to mindfulness and meditation skills which can be helpful for students who are feeling stressed and pressured, or who just want to get more satisfaction from their college experiences. Participants will learn a variety of mindfulness skills to practice both in and outside of this 4-week class, ideally leading to better management of emotional stress and experiencing healthier lives.

The required text for this introductory class is Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D.and/or The Mindful Twenty-Something by Holly B. Rogers, MD

College, graduate, & professional students are all welcome!
