Certificate in Mindfulness

Details

Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present moment and is a key component in a wide variety of current, widely-recognized healing interventions. Neuroscientists are mapping how mindfulness training can change and improve brain health, and scholars are taking a fresh look at the nature of "self," emotion regulation, compassion, wisdom, and the far reaches of human potential.

Mindfulness reduces stress and anxiety and improves health, improves personal and professional relationships, contributes to improved productivity in the workplace, leads to long-term health changes that result in fewer chronic illnesses, reduces demand on the health care system, and improves the quality of life. This certificate addresses how to support mindfulness in all areas of life. It provides a solid foundation of knowledge and information to support individuals who wish to enhance their own well-being as well as health care professionals who wish to evolve in their profession, create new job opportunities for themselves in the exploding field of mindfulness, health promotion, lifestyle coaching, etc. (8 contact hours)

Syllabus

Mindful Meditation

Widely accepted, used, and studied within mainstream medicine, mindfulness meditation involves paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and without judgment. The health benefits of mindfulness meditation include improvements in dealing with stress, pain, and illness. Anyone can engage in this form of meditation, which places no emphasis on religious or faith practices.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe mindfulness meditation, including the health benefits of mindfulness meditation, mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), and the techniques and practices for mindfulness meditation.

Mindfulness and Happiness

New research is demonstrating that mindfulness might be the key to happiness and health. Everyone wants to be happy and healthy. Mindful happiness is not found in external things but within ourselves. By focusing on becoming happier, we will not only feel better but also have increased energy, improved immune function, increased creativity, improved relationships, and increased productivity. Mindful happiness also leads to a healthier, longer life.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe the multiple health benefits of practicing mindfulness happiness, explain how happiness is measured, and provide suggestions for engaging in activities that increase health and happiness.

Mindful Eating

Mindful eating is eating with intention and attention. It is much more than simply eating slowly, without distraction. Mindful eating encompasses the entire process of eating and is a healthy and pleasurable activity for satisfying hunger. When we eat and our mind is paying attention to every bite, savoring the taste, and the nourishment the food provides, we are eating mindfully.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe the concept of mindful eating and its importance in health.

Mindful Movement: Walking, Yoga, Tai Chi, and Qigong

Mindful movement, such as walking, yoga, tai chi, and qigong can be accomplished almost anywhere, nearly everyone can do it, and minimal equipment is needed to participate. Mindful movement is an effective way to reduce stress but there are many other health benefits, including increased mental and physical well-being.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe the mental and physical health benefits of specific types of mindful movement, including walking, yoga, tai chi, and qigong.

Mindful Relationships

Mindful relationships involve being present and paying attention to our relationships with ourselves and within ourselves. Mindfulness, a growing and expanding field, is the ability to focus without judgment and the ability to be present in the moment. It is a skill we can acquire and a compassionate practice individuals can integrate into their lives. As we cultivate mindfulness and self-compassion for ourselves, our relationship with our selves, our significant others, partners, families, and communities are improved.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe characteristics of mindful relationships and how to develop more mindful relationships.
