Mindfulness

Module Overview

Originated by Dr. Sue Barker

Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to the internal and external experiences occurring in the present moment. This can be developed in children and adults through the practice of meditation and other training. The recent popularity of mindfulness in the West is generally considered to have been initiated by Jon Kabat-Zinn. In this module, we look at how mindfulness can cultivate compassion, empathy for others, reduce anxiety and stress, help to adapt to a rapidly changing world, being a caring and committed citizen, creativity, and develop problem solving skills.

We will explore

  • What is mindfulness?
  • What can mindfulness do for you?
  • Seven attitudes of mindfulness
  • How mindfulness affects your brain
  • Putting mindfulness into your everyday life

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
