Who is this class for: This course does not require previous knowledge of the subject. It has been designed both for practitioners of Mindfulness who are seeking to deepen or broaden their knowledge and understanding, as well as for students of the Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, or Humanities who are keen to understand the significance and meaning of Mindfulness for their fields. In addition, Mindfulness coaches, teachers, and therapists may find that this course helps them to consolidate and bolster their professional knowledge base. For those interested in becoming a Mindfulness-based therapist, this course does not constitute a formal qualification to teach, but completion of the certificate does qualify you to start the formal teaching trajectory (ie. it meets the requirement to have completed an 8-week MBSR or MBCT course). In keeping with the nature of the material and the purpose of the course, this course is free, and will remain free for participants. If you are interested in receiving a formal certificate, there will be a fee to cover costs.

I enjoyed the multiple forms of perceptions of practitioners of mindfulness represented by the cartoon figures of Hippie, Monk, Zombie and Ninja. I also enjoyed the broad discussions and the effects of the practice that have been validated by scientic studies. I like it so much that I would have no hesitation to be a mentor in this class to help attendees in learning mindfulness.

Wonderful! Really opened my eyes to what is happening in the current Mindfulness field. Also learned some new meditation techniques. Excellent course !

This course is very interesting and more importantly helpful. The professor is clear and presents the subject in a logical, concise manner. I really appreciate this course and hope that Professor Goto-Jones adds more soon.
