Join us for a four-week mindfulness class. The Koru class is designed to be an introduction to the practice of mindfulness and will give participants the opportunity to learn several skills including meditation, for managing stress and enriching their lives.
Koru Mindfulness is the only evidence-based mindfulness curriculum designed for college-age adults.Ɨ
Koru’s randomized, controlled trial shows results:
- Students reported feeling more calm.
- Students improved their mindfulness.
- Students felt more rested.
- Students had greater self-compassion.
This four-week class will be held on the following days from 1-2:15 p.m. in the Women's Center (on the second floor of the HUB). (Students must attend all four sessions.)
- Monday, January 27
- Monday, February 3
- Monday, February 17
- Monday, February 24

This course is open to all students at GC - all genders are welcome.
While there is no cost for the course, there is a Koru app that participants are asked to download for use during the course. This app costs $3.99 and can be used beyond the length of the course. (It's got several neat features.) If the cost of the app is prohibitive, I do have a limited number of codes where students can obtain the app for free. The use of the app is not necessary for the course, so if you don't have a smart phone or don't want the app, that's ok. Additionally, there is a book used in the course, but this book is available for free as an ebook through the GC library.
