This four session class offers a structured exploration of tending and befriending emotions through mindfulness practices. Team-taught by faculty in neurobiology and the humanities with extensive background in the practice and study of meditation, each session will combine a 30 minute mindfulness practice with a short lecture on topics in the intersection of emotions and mindfulness, and a discussion and reflection segment.
It is recommended that participants commit to attend all four sessions to receive the full benefit of shared practice, reflection, and mini lectures.
At the end of the four sessions, participants will have gained (a) a basic understanding of the neurobiological foundations of emotional well-being, (b) insight into their own capacity for emotional self-regulation through posture, breath, and mind re-adjustment, and (c) a practice model of simple but effective mindfulness meditation interventions to increase emotional wellbeing.
