Rice University Online Class - Mindfulness and Well-being Living with Balance & Ease

Aloha Everyone,

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have taken several classes through Courses, an American open online program which offers immense selection of courses with your ability to earn professional, undergraduate and graduate degrees.

This was a 4-weeks online class titled Mindfulness and Well-being Living with Balance & Ease. Taught by Dr. Elizabeth Slator, a Clinical Psychologist affiliated with Rice University, she primarily employed pre-recorded video to cover the subject. Mindfulness, loving kindness, equanimity, open awareness and other such terms used to describe one’s spiritual practice have now become common and less mysterious.

Mountain meditation presented towards the end of the 4-weeks course truly captivated my attention. I have not heard of this particular form of meditation before and when I sat down to practice following Dr. Slater’s voice, my experience was very positive and exciting.

I plan to incorporate Mountain Meditation into my daily meditation practice.

Aloha -- Cathi
