UCLA Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPs) II: Cultivating Positive Emotions
Six Wednesdays, July 13 – August 17
4:30 – 6:30 PM (PST)
This MAPs II: Cultivating Positive Emotions class emphasizes heart-based qualities that complement mindfulness. Moreover, these emotions can be cultivated through meditation practices. To benefit these heart qualities, we will explore loving-kindness, compassion, equanimity (even-mindedness), joy, generosity, and gratitude. Importantly, you will learn new meditations and other tools to work with when you find yourself stuck and not feeling positive emotions, and practical exercises to incorporate into your daily life. Uniquely designed, this is a helpful expansion to our basic mindfulness practice.
This is a 6-week class that meets once a week for two hours. Each class is a combination of lecture, practice, group feedback, and discussion. Students report that the group support was one of the most helpful and inspiring aspects of the class.
Who Should Take This Class?
MAPs courses help people of all backgrounds and religions and are suitable for ages 16 and over.
