With increasing student interest in Koru Mindfulness, a second course will be offered this fall at the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. Koru Mindfulness is a four-week course designed for teaching mindfulness, meditation and stress management to college students.
“As this program continues to spark interest from students, we have decided to offer a second course this fall,” said Dan Harris, Koru instructor and director of the Tyson Center for Faith and Spirituality in the Workplace at the Walton College. “Our hope is this second class is more conveniently located for students who spend most of their time on this side of campus.”
Koru Mindfulness is taught over four weeks in 75-minute classes. Koru is designed for those with all mindfulness experience levels. The four-week course starts Thursday, Oct. 13, at 5 p.m. in WCOB 405, and continues every Thursday until Nov. 3.
This free course, which is open to all students, has shown to have significant benefits on sleep, perceived stress, mindfulness and self-compassion.
“Koru Mindfulness helps put things in perspective so that you can consciously make an effort to think positively and accurately,” said Dr. Ed Mink, director of Wellness and Health Promotion at the Pat Walker Health Center. “This course will help you be aware of the subtleness of life and help you start living a heart-centered life focusing on the NOW.”
Benefits of the Koru Mindfulness course include:
- feeling less stressed
- staying calm and worrying less
- being more mindful
- sleeping better
- using less self-judgment
