The Mindfulness Center at UNC | Mindfulness-Based Courses, Workshops, & Retreats
Hosted by the Mindfulness Center at the UNC Program on Integrative Medicine
The UNC Mindfulness-based Program for Stress and Pain Management offers training in meditation and mind-body awareness that will teach you how to slow down, set priorities and stay calm, focused and relaxed in the midst of a busy life. These practices will enhance your body’s natural adaptive healing ability and will cultivate the mind’s clarity and insight.
This evidenced-based program is based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s model that teaches Mindfulness is “the awareness that arises from paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” It enables individuals to step out of ‘automatic pilot.’ and to connect and respond to daily life with increased awareness and self-control.
The class format includes instruction and practice of mindfulness skills, mind-body exercises, group dialogue, and daily home assignments. In this program, you will receive:
- 8 weekly classes of 2-1/2 hours each
- One 6-hour retreat on a Saturday
- Recordings with guided meditations and stretching practices
- Access to extensive handouts, reading lists, home assignments, resources, etc.
Participants are encouraged to practice home assignments for 30-40 minutes every day and to complete an initial questionnaire and a course evaluation. This challenging, life-affirming course requires a strong commitment for maximal benefit. Your instructors are committed to and skilled at creating a safe, supportive, and deeply engaging learning environment.
