A six-week mindfulness class, held by Daisy Swan, who is affiliated with UCLA’s mindful awareness research center (

UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center is one of the nation’s leading university-based mindfulness centers. MARC’s mission is to foster mindful awareness across the lifespan through education and research to promote well-being and a more compassionate society. The Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPs) classes are MARC’s signature educational programs and are only taught by trained and certified instructors. Daisy Swan has been a certified teacher with MARC since 2012 and has been regularly teaching MAPS I and II classes since then.

UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center has developed this six-week course as an excellent introduction to mindfulness. Through this class you’ll gain insight into the basics of mindfulness, learn how to develop a regular mindfulness meditation practice, and strategies for how to incorporate mindfulness into your daily life. Experienced practitioners will also find this a supportive class in which to revitalize their practice.

What we’ll cover in the class:

An overview of mindfulness and how we define and ‘practice’ this –

Mindfulness of the body
Obstacles we all experience to mindfulness
How mindful awareness can help with physical pain
How to work with difficult emotions that arise
Cultivation of positive emotions
Working with difficult thoughts
Communicating mindfully

Participants will receive home-practice assignments to begin to establish a regular mindfulness routine. Starting at five minutes a day and working up to 20 minutes daily by the end of the course, previous participants have cited this part of the class as one of the most helpful to weave their meditation practice into their lives.
