Starts October 25th, 2021 - Limited Enrollment
We’ll dive deeply into the nature of presence, and how learning the Wheel of Awareness practice can build skills of focused attention, open awareness, and kind intention that research suggests are the three pillars of mind training that have been empirically shown to cultivate these important aspects of flourishing.
Health and healing each derive from the notion of a whole, the core of spiritual growth, the heart of scientific inquiry, and the setting for our exploration of what it means to awaken the mind, to be present, to be aware.
This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn about a science based approach to strengthen the mind and to enhance resilience and promote professional and personal well-being.
No prerequisites needed!
