Koru Mindfulness Training for CS Students
- Wednesday, May 12, 2021 to Wednesday, June 2, 2021, from 5:30pm to 6:45pm
Koru Mindfulness Training is the only evidence-based mindfulness curriculum designed for college-aged adults. The program was started by two docs at Duke Medical School over 10 years ago. It is now taught at over 100 institutions in the US and abroad and over 10,000 students have taken the Koru Basic course. Koru’s randomized, controlled trial shows results including students reported feeling more calm, experienced improved mindfulness, felt more rested, and had greater self-compassion. Here is the MSU Koru website for further information : MSU OHA KORU webpage
This course will be taught by 2 MSU staff (one professor and one physician assistant) who have been trained as Koru teachers. It consists of four 75-minute classes over 3 weeks. The materials for the course (The Mindful Twenty-Something ebook and the Koru app) and all instruction are completely free. You will just need a good internet connection to join. Our class size is limited to 12 students. It is important to commit to attending all four sessions. If you would like to participate, please RSVP and we will be in touch with you with further information. Thank you!
