UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC)
This new institute at UCLA is one of our staff favorites. We love their many courses and seminars on mindfulness and meditation which are not just interesting, but also backed up with solid scientific research. Bring even your most skeptical friend to a day-long intensive with PhDs and world-renown Scientists and they’ll be converted to the benefits of being present with no turning back.
MARC offers a variety of courses – from weekly free mediation sessions, to on-going courses, day long retreats and Workshops hosted by a variety of best in class Professors, Authors and Researchers. We recently attended a session by the authors of “You are Not Your Brain” and were fully blown away.
MARC events are listed on Glad.is
