Call for Koru Mindfulness Program

Facilitated by Drs. Shradha Tibrewal & Betsy Eudey

Join us for a 4-week virtual workshop series if you might be interested in learning and practicing mindfulness meditation: paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and without judgment. Participants will learn a variety of mindfulness skills to practice both in and outside of class, ideally leading to better management of emotional stress and experiencing healthier lives.

What is Koru?

Koru Mindfulness is a national program developed at Duke University by college mental health professionals. This is a four-session mindfulness training program specifically designed to meet the developmental needs of college students, but is applicable to anyone wanting support creating a mindfulness practice. Participants leave the very first session with tools they can use immediately.

What can Koru do for you?

Mindfulness and meditation can help improve your sleep, reduce your stress levels, build your resilience when life is difficult,. Regular mindfulness practice can reduce stress and improve health, focus, and well-being.

What’s Involved?

  • Each class is 75 minutes and is structured with daily homework of a mindfulness log and 10 minutes of mindfulness practice. The group will meet virtually once a week for 4 weeks on Thursdays from 1:00-2:15 pm, on August 25, September 1, 8, and 15.
  • There is a mobile phone app that will be provided to you for free with guided meditations, a community gratitude river, and more.
  • There is a book, The Mindful Twenty Something, that you’re encouraged to read - it offers information about mindfulness practice and scripts for mindfulness activities. The book is available as an etext from the campus library: E-Text Link
