Based on the idea that small personal changes can have a huge impact on the world, this course provides strategies for increasing cultural inclusion and challenging systems of social inequity beginning within. Research shows that the ancient practice of mindfulness can serve as a tool not only for increasing health/wellness and decreasing stress, but also to challenge our implicit biases. We can use mindfulness for personal empowerment, culturally inclusive leadership, and social and environmental justice. Taught by Dena Samuels, Ph.D.
