SECTION I: Foundational to Developing Mindfulness Skills for Well-being

MLO 100: Intro to Life Intelligence and Integration

This is the foundational course to all the MLOs that follow.

This can include skills one needs for self-love and care to organizing one’s life, to skills for effective and healthy communication in various relationships to knowing and carrying one’s role and responsibilities in their life. Participants will respond to a questionnaire to gage their level of competency in the matters of the heart, empathy, generosity, emotional balance, communication and engagement, critical thinking and self-awareness, the ability to make wise choices, and personal and professional accountability.
