Introduction to Mindfulness

Introduction to Mindfulness
Students will learn and intensively practice, basic sitting and walking meditation. We will use the breath to foster relaxed attention and to gain perspective on our restless minds. Emphasis will be on using these techniques in daily life and academic endeavors. We will read texts from the contemporary American, Tibetan, and Zen Buddhist traditions, although meditation will be employed in nonsectarian fashion applicable to any belief system. Students will reflect on their learning through papers and presentations. No meditation experience necessary. (Not open to students who have taken FYSE1393 or INTD1125) 3 hrs. lect
