NEW COURSE: Inner Work | Outer Work: Meditation & Mindfulness in Inclusive Social Development
January 12 @ 4:15 pm - February 9 @ 5:30 pm$25
Weekly on Thursdays | January 12-February 9 | 4:15-5:30 ET | 0.6 CEUs | $25 per participant
In the context of Inclusive Social Development, Karl König emphasizes the significance of ongoing inner work as the wellspring for outer work in education, social therapy, and community building. But learning the fundamental skills of mindfulness and meditation is hard to do on your own. This is especially true for people who care for others: those in service professions, care workers, and members of mission-driven organizations.
In this practice-based course, participants will learn basic techniques for developing awareness, nonjudgmental observation, and the cultivation of gratitude that lies at the foundation of inner work. Utilizing the Koru curriculum developed at Duke University, participants will gain a toolkit of concrete, mindfulness-based skills to build a foundation for their own practice, and experience the diverse therapeutic, empathetic, and vocational applications of meditative practice.
