Our Mindfulness for Young Adults programs help young adults learn how to manage stress and develop the wisdom needed to guide important life decisions. We use the Koru Mindfulness curriculum, designed to be both approachable and practical for the busy 18 to 29-year-old.
College students and young adults have more choices today than ever before, causing toxic amounts of stress evidenced by alarming anxiety, depression and suicide rates. The ability to calm mental chatter can be a crucial skill to combat these stressors. Koru Mindfulness students are less stressed, sleep better and live with greater mindfulness and self-compassion.
The Center for Koru Mindfulness developed this evidence-based curriculum using extensive research by Duke University psychiatrists Holly Rogers, MD, & Margaret Maytan, MD.
Taking the Koru course includes lifetime access to the companion app.
Goals of the course include:
- Improvements in quality of sleep
- Skills for managing anxiety
- Less stress
- Improved focus
- Emotional regulation
