Koru was developed by academic professionals at Duke University Integrative Medicine program. Mindfulness is about developing the ability to be fully attentive to all the moments of your life, reducing the amount of time you spend worrying about the future or fretting about the past and meditation is the supportive tool to get you there. An important aspect of mindfulness is developing a non-judgmental, accepting, even curious, attitude about your moment-to-moment experience. The more you develop this attitude, the less you will feel overwhelmed by changes and challenges in your life. Mindfulness has proven to help in cultivating resilience, confidence, compassion, and wisdom. I am excited to join you in the practice of being in your present moment.
Koru Basic is a 4 session introduction course that will teach you the skill of mindfulness and tools of meditation. It will also help you build the habit of using it in your life on a regular basis. We’ve found that students get a lot more out of Koru if they stick with it from beginning to end, therefore attendance at all 4 sessions is required. So double check your calendar and click the link below to send a sign-up request for the upcoming class.
During Koru 2.o, you will be reviewing some of the mindfulness skills you learned in your Koru Basic class and learn some new skills as well. This class is designed help you to continue to develop your mindfulness muscle. We will take the practice a bit further, aiming to lengthen your meditation practices and get you more in the habit of living with greater mindfulness. As in the first Koru class, we invite you to devote yourself to the study and practice of mindfulness over the next four weeks, and we challenge you to stay curious about what evolves for you as you persistently and patiently practice living mindfully.
