Tips for meditation and developing healthy habits are the subjects of the next series of classes in our Health and Wellness department.

New instructor Anne Kalashian will lead Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation (Course 12505), a four week evening course starting Thursday, April 11, 2024. Kalashian will demystify mindfulness meditation, familiarize students with the basics, and teach basic meditation practices to cultivate mindfulness around the body, emotions, and thought.

Also new to the faculty, Cris Chiavenato will be offering both daytime and evening sessions of Habits Made Simple. Understand the roles of motivation, willpower, and discipline in your efforts to create positive new habits and break undesirable patterns. Learn science-based practical strategies, presented in an easy, step-by-step format over the span of four classes. The daytime session (Course 12598) begins Monday, May 6, 2024 (new start date); the evening class (Course 12599) meets Thursdays, starting May 2, 2024.
