with Shari Schofield
July 27 – August 17
The Koru Minfulness program was developed over the course of a decade by psychiatrists Holly Rogers, MD & Margaret Maytan, MD to bring the benefits of mindfulness to the college students they worked with at Duke University’s student counseling center.
Koru Mindfulness is evidence-based curriculum specifically designed for teaching mindfulness, meditation, and stress management to “emerging” adults. The curriculum consists of 4 – 75 minute sessions, one a week, in a comfortable cohort of 12 – 15 participants.
Shari Scofield will be offering Koru Basic at The Center on Thursdays from 4:30pm to 6:00pm.
The four sessions will meet on Thursdays July 25th, Aug.1st, 8th, and 15th. While Koru is appropriate for beginners of any age, this session if offered for young people ages 15 – 26.
Some need-based scholarships available. Contact Suzanne@thecenterdowntown.org
