Mindfulness 101. Universities across Canada are putting meditation and mindfulness on the curriculum. According to a recent Maclean’s article, Universities are teaching meditation to help students control stress. Across Canada, university campuses are offering classes, drop-in sessions, and apps designed to help students reduce their stress levels. In the east, for example, the University of PEI offers an 8-week “mindfulness-based stress management course”, while in the west, Simon Fraser University offers the Sonic Cradle, a sensory-reduced environment that students find so calming it’s hard to get them to leave. AU students can check out mindfulness resources from AUSU’s Student Lifeline service.
