KORU* MINDFULNESS is the only mindfulness-based program designed specifically for young adults, taking into account unique life challenges and needs of this age. It is scientifically proven to be effective to help manage stress, enrich lives, and bring deeper meaning. We learn specific skills that calm and focus our minds; and explore the practice of meditation.

I am able to settle in to the direct experience of the moment, casting away unproductive worries about the past and futureI am more able to create space between an emotional event and an instinctual reaction, increasing the probability I will proceed in a more skillful way that will benefit all involved.”  – Jonathan Cranford, PhD, biomedical engineering, took Koru as a doctoral student.

“Mindfulness has given me a tool to manage my stress. – Katherine Zhang, BA, English & Economics, took Koru her senior year.

Beyond simply decreasing stress, this course offers an approach to increasing satisfaction in your daily life.

Koru Mindfulness was developed locally, at Duke University, where the classes are extremely popular (and always filled to capacity). Hundreds of local undergrads and grad students have taken these 4 short classes and found it helped them feel more calm and less stressed. For a limited time, it is now being offered to the community at large, at the Durham Arts Council, for anyone who would like to bring more calm into their lives. Adults in their 20s or 30s will find it particularly relevant and accessible.
