UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center


Free Drop-in Meditations


Special Drop-in Sessions
Wed July 9 

Mindful Awareness 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.

The weekly "drop-in" sessions are led by UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center's Diana Winston, Marvin G. Belzer Ph.D, or guest teachers.

Open to anyone interested in learning how to 'live more presently' in life.

Note: Classes will not meet during University holidays. Sessions with an asterisk(*) will not meet until Fall quarter, Monday, September 29.
