In this course you will learn two complementary methods for growing mindfulness and self-compassion. Mind-Body Empowerment teaches us to be more mindful, attuned, and empowered during daily life. Mindful Biology helps us feel more familiar, loving, and at ease with our bodies and minds. Co-taught by a former mind-body clinician and a former surgeon, class sessions include brief talks about the human body, guided mindfulness, gentle physical grounding and centering practices, and group discussion. Many students keep coming back because of the improved well-being and sense of community they have gained from the class.
