Discover techniques to help you maintain a mindful life.
Interest in mindfulness has grown enormously over the last few years. It’s no surprise: mindfulness techniques can improve your communication skills, relationships and emotional health. But not everyone knows how to apply mindfulness in daily life.
Building upon the introductory Mindfulness for Wellbeing Peak and Performance, this course will show you how can embed mindfulness into all aspects of your life.
This course is intended for people with previous experience of practising mindfulness and we strongly recommend completing the introductory course Mindfulness for Wellbeing and Peak Performance before doing this more advanced course.

This course is well structured. The course material is well presented, with a lot of supporting literature and additional material for those interested in exploring it further. I have followed the course many times and each time find it very stimulating. It is well supported by the mentor and the organisers of the course. There is always a lively community of learners engaging with thoughtful contributions. I highly recommend it.
Another brilliant course from Monash Uni x Future Learn. As a continuation of the Mindfulness, Wellbeing and Peak Performance course I was really grateful to participate in this course. With the meditations, end of week video feedback from the tutors and supplementary commentary and clarification, this course was really well paced and held together. The course tutors were friendly, approachable and human which made it very engaging; the encouraging conversations and comments between learners helped expand discussion; the design of the course — topics, practical elements and pacing was really well designed. For those interested in meditation, mindfulness and tools for daily living I would highly recommend taking part.
Very helpful and scientifically based.
Everyone has to read this, very helpful
