Special Programs

ONLINE: Mindful Awareness Meditation

Thursdays, 12:30–1 p.m. PDT

These free weekly drop-in sessions usually take place in the Hammer’s Billy Wilder Theater but are now offered live online via Zoom.

Mindful awareness meditation is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental, and emotional experiences. Mindfulness has scientific support as a means to reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being. These half-hour weekly sessions are open to people of all levels of experience.

Sessions are led by Diana Winston and other instructors from the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center.

Past sessions are available on the MARC website, where you can also download the UCLA Mindful app.
