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 course will meet on:
Apr 29, 2021 10:00 AM
May 6, 2021 10:00 AM
May 13, 2021 10:00 AM

The app is 10% Happier, a best-in-class program hosted by Dan Harris, a best-selling author, ABC news personality and self-described “fidgety skeptic,” alongside Joseph Goldstein, one of the most renowned meditation teachers in the world. This app is now available for free to all benefits-eligible faculty and staff. Live instruction is provided by teachers from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care’s Mind the Moment mindfulness program, which has been training individuals to incorporate mindfulness into their personal and professional lives for over ten years.
The course is built around four, one-hour, live Zoom sessions. Between these sessions, participants will complete one of the many 10% Happier courses 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 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 to take advantage of this new free app – will find this course to be an attractive option. This course will count as a prerequisite to the more advanced mindfulness courses offered. Audience: All Benefits-Eligible Faculty and Staff; Prerequisite: None; Length: 60 minutes session, 4 weeks. All participants must be able to commit to attending all of the sessions.
