This five-week course draws on mindfulness and CBT to help you deal with stress and anxiety, depression, physical pain and other challenges

Mindfulness for Life is a course for students wishing to learn mindfulness skills for navigating life's challenges. It can even enhance your capacity for joy and creativity.

Over five weekly sessions, we'll guide you through a range of sitting, walking and movement meditations. Teaching and group discussion will help you apply what you learn in your mindfulness practice to your everyday life.

This evidence-based course is taught by experienced mindfulness teachers from the Therapeutic Services team.
