Intro to healing mind, body and spirit. Exploring Career In Complementary and Alternative Medicine
 
Mindfulness has been described as experiencing moment to moment nonjudgmental awareness-or simply paying attention on purpose.  Research on the effects of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction has indicated that participants may experience increased focus, improved concentration, increased immune function, increased emotional resilience, decreased mind-wandering, reduced test anxiety, reduced symptoms of stress, and improved decision-making.  Through experiential activities such as meditation and personal inquiry, students will be offered the opportunity to explore the process of improving their moment to moment non-judgmental awareness.  Topics in the course include:  The Stress Response, Responding vs. Reacting, Meditation Guidelines, Home Practice Exercises, Body Scan, Mindful Movement, and Research Findings.  (This course curriculum is based on the University of Massachusetts MBSR program established by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Market value of this course ranges between $500-$700.) Students will be required to bring their own yoga mat to class.
