Mindfulness

COURSE | WELE 5005

The practice of mindfulness invites us to become aware of what is happening in the present moment without wishing it were different; to enjoy the pleasant without holding on when it changes, and to accept the unpleasant without fearing it will stay forever. In this practicum, students will apply the scientific and historical background of mindfulness practices to help themselves and their clients train their attention for present focus and to engage in mindful inquiry. They will discover strategies for stress reduction, self-compassion, empathy, healthy habits of mind and mood and explore cognitive strategies to increase resilience.

In this course, students will learn to:

  • Describe the historical evolution of mindfulness theories and principles.
  • Discuss current theories and principles of mindfulness.
  • Explain how mindfulness enhances clarity in purpose and productivity in the workplace.
  • Communicate mindfulness concepts and experiences through written and oral communication.
  • Apply mindfulness skills to cultivate and establish a personal practice.
  • Recognize moments of mindfulness in daily life.
  • Open the mind to creative and introspective learning techniques to communicate effectively with others.
