    Interested in learning new skills to help you manage your stress? Join a 4 session Koru Mindfulness course that will teach you the skill of mindfulness. Mindfulness develops self-awareness that informs all of your important life choices and helps maintain peace of mind - among other benefits! The course will help you build the habit of using mindfulness in your life on a regular basis, with just 10 minutes per day. We've found that folks get a lot more out of Koru if they stick with it from beginning to end, therefore we ask you to commit to attend all 4 sessions. The course will meet in person on Tuesdays (October 25, November 1, November 8, & November 15) and will be led by certified Koru instructor, Kelli Raker (Academic Affairs). Open to students, faculty, and staff from across Duke University. If you would like to sign up to attend or for more information, please email Kelli Raker at kelli.raker@law.duke.edu by Thursday, October 20, 2022. Class size is limited to 15 people. Sponsored by DuWell.
