Learning Goals include: Opening students up to the power of mindfulness and demystify contemplative practices by making them accessible (and enjoyable); Offering students the tools for developing the core emotional and personal strength that can be accessed through these practices. They will need them to fully face the environmental problems ahead; Guiding students through practicing the skills they will need for being part of the solution; Presenting mindfulness as an approach to grounding and strength in that struggle.
