University Connected Learning
Osher members will experience the two complementary ways to practice mindfulness: learning the formal practice of meditation and the informal experience of letting mindfulness spill over into everyday life. This course will introduce the concept of mindfulness, covering history, benefits and science behind this age-old practice. When a practitioner pays attention to the present moment, mindfulness unfolds a whole new level of awareness. Meditation has been shown to have many beneficial effects, both mental and physical.
