Mindful : August 2016
Ten years ago, mindfulness was not a word jumping out of every other article in the paper, so starting the Mindful Awareness Research Cen- ter at UCLA was a landmark event. With justifiable pride, the center is celebrating 10 years of helping students and the public synchro- nize their minds and bodies. With a community-centered, research- based approach, MARC offers year- round, six-week-long programs open to everyone, for-credit courses for students, retreats, workshops, free classes, and online recordings. MARC also conducts studies of mindfulness through its affiliation with the Cousins Center for Psy- choneuroimmunology. Its Training in Mindfulness Facilitation pro- gram helps teachers become effec- tive leaders in their communities, and it is leading an effort to create a certification board to establish and oversee professional standards for mindfulness facilitators. “We help people bring out their creativity and uniqueness,” says Diana Winston, MARC’s director of Mindfulness Education. “ We are very much an organization that plants seeds and are continually amazed and grate- ful for the many ways they have blossomed.” Happy Birthday, MARC! Things that spark our minds, touch our hearts, make us smile— or roll our eyes. Keep up with the latest in mindfulness.
