Learn to Meditate  -  HP139

Returning for Summer 2017!

Participants from past LTM gave it such high praise that we are bringing back Wendy Quan to facilitate this 3-part series once again.


UBC Health, Wellbeing and Benefits recognizes the growing interest from our community in exploring mindfulness meditation practice and its positive impacts to wellbeing. We strive to support personal resiliency, self-awareness and stress management for UBC staff and faculty. In encouraging the development of individual strengths and coping strategies, we can build more resilient, healthy, and sustainable work environments.

This 3-part course is designed for both new and experienced in the world of mindfulness meditation. It will introduce participants to the basic concepts of meditation and mindfulness techniques and is specifically tuned to the working environment.

Sessions will include instruction, discussion, guided meditation and visualization in a non-religious context. Participants will be provided with handouts, homework practice, follow up emails and access to downloadable recordings.

Goals of this course:

  • To cultivate personal resiliency and stress management skills;

  • To learn various techniques to find what works best for you;

  • To understand the key factors for successful mindfulness meditation; and

  • Gain confidence to start a personal practice of your own.
