This multi-session course will provide participants with the opportunity to learn about mindfulness and build their own personal practices using a combination of live and app-based supports.
The app is 10% Happier, a best-in-class program hosted by best-selling author, ABC news personality, and self-described “fidgety skeptic” Dan Harris, alongside Joseph Goldstein, one of the most renowned meditation teachers in the world. Live instruction is provided by teachers from Harvard Pilgrim’s Mind the Moment mindfulness program, which has been training individuals to incorporate mindfulness into their personal and professional lives for over 10 years.
The course is built around three, one-hour, in-person sessions featuring a Mind the Moment instructor. Between these in-person sessions, participants will complete the fourteen-part 10% Happier series on their mobile devices. A mindfulness coach will also be available to participants by text or by phone, to answer additional questions that may arise between the in-person sessions.
This course will have special appeal for individuals or groups who prefer a more self-directed approach to learning, and who may require more flexibility in terms of the amount of time they are able to commit. Additionally, those who have studied mindfulness in the past but whose practices have lapsed--or who are simply looking for a new take on the material—will find this a course to be an attractive option. Includes unlimited access to the 10% Happier app for a four-month period. All participants must be able to commit to attending all the sessions. Audience: All, Pre-Requisite: None, Length: 3 hours, 3 weeks, Participation Maximum: 25
Dates: May 31; June 7 & 21 @11:00 AM- Location: 114 Mt Auburn Street, 4th floor Conference room 406. Go here to register.
