Mindfulness is a very good modality to relieve negative perception and emotion in our daily life. One of example is to manage anxiety. Learning to manage anxiety takes courage and a lot of discipline. If we are willing to practice noticing, acknowledging, and then letting go of anxious thoughts and emotions, we can learn to be at ease with anxious thoughts and emotions rather than trying to get rid of them. It’s not about suppressing or controlling our thoughts and emotions; it’s about letting them be and knowing they will leave on their own—like a friend who visits from out of town for a few days.

The course overall was okay. I liked that there were questions to be answered throughout to make sure that people were reviewing the course. Having students to grade the work of others I feel was not a good idea because it seemed like many dropped the course and there were not enough assignments completed to grade in time to meet the deadline. I think this should be stated in the beginning of the first assignment for those that do not read through the whole course in the beginning.

But overall I didn't connect well with the course.

Wonderful experience. I am a yoga practitioner, and I used mindfulness as an intervention as part of my Ph.D. work among HIV infected adults. This particular information added a lot to my knowledge in mindfulness, especially I read that people experience depression after practicing mindfulness/yoga. I had a question in mind about why depression scores are going, and this course answered it. Thanks to instructors for leading this course with a lot of case examples, interviews, and theoretical knowledge.

Excellent exploration of the topic. I'm an experienced mindfulness practitioner, but I learned a great deal about advising clients about mindfulness, exploring the different specialized types of practices, and especially the research around effectiveness. I recommend this class to healthcare and wellness providers and to serious students of mindfulness for personal practice.

Congratulations! Thank you teachers of this course for this excellent course where you not only learn about Mindfulness but also values such as kindness, gratitude, tolerance, self-acceptance, the possibility of being a little calmer in this turbulent world and that it is a right to have a better quality of life. Thank you very much.

Great Courses. A lot of overlap with guided Imagery. All of the courses in this specialization are fantastic! The only frustrating aspect is the peer-review which can take quite a while to receive. Students work at different paces. I strongly recommend that students save all readings and video presentations or future reference!

I enjoyed this class and it gave me a much better understanding about what mindfulness is. The teacher's were very well prepared and the videos were informative. The use of healthcare workers talking about how they used mindfulness was also informative and validated the high stress in the healthcare system.

This course was the first I decided to graduate in Coursera. It gave me a lot of new ideas how to support my clients and myself, especially regarding chronic pain and anxiety. I thank the instructors of this course from the bottom of my heart, being in this moment and really feeling the gratitude :).

It is an excellent course, with a very good mix of theory and practice. Teachers who are experts on the subject and committed to the program. Entertaining classes with good content, well-developed materials and, above all, a focus on the well-being of patients.

Thanks a lot.

This course was extremely helpful in learning the nuts and bolts of mindfulness. I enjoyed the live interviews with medical staff and various meditations throughout the course. I learned so much that I can apply in my personal life and for work as well.

This course on mindfulness was of high quality and distinctive, preferably if there were courses on cognitive behavioral therapy with alertness and that it has sections to deal with each disorder separately. Thanks for your great effort

Such an interesting and potentially life-changing course. I shall continue with my own mindfulness practice as I gained much benefit from it during this short course. My thanks to the educators and course organisers.

One of the most complete MF courses. Not only videos and displays options but studies and scientific publications are available during the course and as resources. Really good option for further studies.
