MBM 5655 - Mindfulness, Meditation and Health


Mindfulness is the ability to have non-judgmental awareness of events as they unfold moment by moment. Mindfulness is a fundamental and ancient component of many Eastern and Western spiritual traditions. In recent years, there has been substantial research on the use of mindfulness in the treatment of medical conditions and mental disorders, as well as its application in healthcare, education and the workplace. This course is both theoretical and experiential. Students learn about and discuss the origins of mindfulness practices, the modern scientific underpinnings of mindfulness research, and multiple applications of mindfulness in medicine, healthcare and society. Students learn and are supported in the personal development of a simple mindfulness practice. Students’ personal experiences are the basis for understanding mindfulness as a tool for stress management, self awareness and self efficacy. Students are also be encouraged to assess the appropriateness of mindfulness in their own lives as a spiritual practice and a way of life. Prerequisite(s): No Prerequisite. 3 credit(s)
Offered: FA - Term A. Course Length: 8 Weeks. RC Required.
