Mindfulness Center

The UVA Mindfulness Center offers intensive training courses to develop mindfulness skills – the practice of focusing our attention on our inner experience at the moment that it is happening. By practicing these skills, we learn to be more “awake,” more alert to the moments of our life as they unfold. Being present to our life increases our opportunities to make conscious choices. Mindfulness is a sensible, straightforward way to experience the mind/body connection.
