Mindfulness Online – where to start

See the source image
So many resources.

A brief addition to Summits of the Mind post as I notice that Coursera, an online learning platform founded by Stanford University in 2012, recommends the Demystifying Mindfulness Course run by The University of Leiden that I listed:


Coursera has had much success with The Science of Well-Being Course taught by Professor Laurie Santos at Yale. This is commonly known as The Happiness Course; it is free and was linked in the blog https://wordpress.com/block-editor/post/insideyoga.blog/3430.

There is so much out there that it is hard to know where to start. Laurie Santos’ course may be a helpful starting point.

  1. thanks liz for all the useful information – so many things availiable which is great. When I started on this journey many years ago I did the oxford mindfullness course via book and CD which was a good introduction – what I found more useful for me later on was the Mindfulness for health – when I was having problems with chronic pain – this was a lifeline for me. Now I use the headspace app (excellent) and try to meditate 3 times a day.
    Mindfulness is no quick fix and much patience and perseverence is required but its worth it … thanks again Fiona


  2. Very useful advice Fiona. There can be a sense of “guilt” for some when resorting to an app but such guides, especially, as this time when we are generally more isolated, can be so helpful in our creating a routine for positive reflection. I am using Dan Harris’ “Waking Up” at present.
