« back to classes page
Science highlights the wonder of Life. Spirituality encourages reverence. Mindful Biology combines the two. It helps us grow intimate with our bodies, one another, and the biosphere. The class explores the power and mystery of basic biology with the aid of inspiring imagery, group sharing, and guided mindfulness. Taught by a retired surgeon, Mindful Biology cultivates self-compassion, gratitude, and equanimity. Each term covers a different topic in an ongoing series that can be entered at any point. Come home to Life!

Instructor Bio:
A former facial surgeon, Will began meditating in 1987. He began teaching biology-based mindfulness to yoga teachers in 2012 and has been offering it at College of Marin since 2016. The practice of ‘Mindful Biology’ cultivates intimacy with the body, dissolves feelings of isolation, and helps us find ease amidst life’s challenges. Will’s teaching is informed by lifelong interest in biology and health, including forays into ecology, zoology, biophysics, neuroscience, ophthalmology, environmental health, and Chinese Medicine.
