Mindfulness Programs Overview

The University of Minnesota's Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing has offered mindfulness classes for individuals, organizations, businesses, and communities for more than two decades.

Mindfulness is an awareness of one’s present moment experience with curiosity, kindness and a non-judgmental attitude. Mindfulness is also other-oriented, as it involves social/environmental awareness. When we are mindful, we are often able to see and respond to others with greater sensitivity and understanding.

Our community mindfulness programs have served thousands of people, and include in-person and online opportunities such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Mindful Mondays, and Mindfulness at Work.
