The practice of mindfulness is a well-documented method for helping calm our nervous system and staying centered, especially in times of high stress, volatility, and uncertainty. This interactive online program is aimed at providing you with an opportunity to take a break from dealing with crises and ambiguity. Join us, and you will learn sustainable techniques and practices to reduce your stress levels, refocus your attention, and increase your productivity in your professional, as well as your personal life. If you have tried some form of mindfulness practice before but have given up again because it was “too hard," consider this course - it's different. It has been listed on REFINERY29.COM as one of "The Coolest Virtual Courses You Can Take at Canada's Top Schools."
This course includes four 90 minute synchronous sessions scheduled weekly from 11:00 am-12:30 pm Atlantic Time. In addition to the four hours of online sessions, learners can expect to spend eight hours in reading and self-reflection activities over the four-week course (2 hours per week).
