OSHR 1330 - Mindfulness Practices for Everyday Life

  • Noncredit
  • Fort Collins

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

This course offers a variety of mindfulness practice tools for diverse audiences, and contributes to stress reduction and relaxation, focus and concentration, and overall well-being. Each session will begin with an overview of cognitive research, physical and mental benefits, and a description of the mindfulness practice tool and its historical and current use. New mindfulness practices will be introduced each week, with a review of the previous week’s practice.

Participants will be invited to engage in "hands-on" - 5-15 minute practices - and guided by the Instructor. An example of a practice technique is focused breath meditation. Q & A will follow each practice to share in a group format, within your comfort level, so that we can learn from each other’s experiences. Everyone is welcome and beginners are encouraged to attend.

No Class September 29.
