Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPs II)


Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPs) II:
Cultivating Positive Emotions
(formerly Finding Happiness)

(a UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center program led by Career Coach, Daisy Swan)

This MAPs II class is a wonderful next step and complement to our mindfulness practice. In this class we focus on cultivating feelings that add up to a deeper kind of happiness…that comes from developing increased awareness of kindness, compassion, equanimity (even-mindedness), joy, generosity, and gratitude. During this class we’ll cover mindfulness meditation, and new meditations and practical strategies that help us to access our positive emotions even when in stressful situations.

This class can’t help but be uplifting and engaging, and is sure to bring new perspective to all aspects of your life. You will find this to be a valuable and relevant means to living a more satisfying and mindful life.

Each class is a dynamic, interactive combination of lecture, practice, and group feedback and discussion. MAPs is taught in a context of a supportive community environment with classes no larger than 30-40 students. Daisy Swan will be leading this class series; she has years of personal experience practicing mindfulness, and teaching it.
