This course is designed to help students explore the history and development of mindfulness in America and consider the influence of mindfulness practices on trends in higher education. Travel is centered in Boston, Massachusetts—an important location for mindfulness research and training. Students will also participate in a mindfulness retreat at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Western Massachusetts. Guided by their own experiences and research, students will return to Elon consider how persuasion and advocacy efforts could be used to create a more “mindful” campus. Final projects will include creative communications campaigns designed to inform and influence the Elon community.
The Winter Term and fall courses partially fulfill the Elon Core Curriculum requirement in the area of Society.
The WT course also satisfies the Experiential Learning Requirement for the Elon Core Curriculum requirement.
