Koru Mindfulness and Meditation

Koru Mindfulness

The Koru Mindfulness program was developed over the course of a decade by psychiatrists Holly Rogers and Margaret Maytan to bring the benefits of mindfulness to the college students they worked with at Duke University’s student counseling center.

The evidence-based Koru curriculum is supported by a randomized controlled trial and designed specifically for college students and young adults to manage stress, improve sleep, and increase mindfulness and self-compassion, however participants of all ages are welcome.

Students and employees are invited to discover the importance of mindfulness at the Koru Mindfulness series. During the series, participants will be introduced to the practice of mindfulness and learn several skills, including meditation for managing stress.

For Basic & 2.0 classes we ask that participants commit to attending all 4 classes. For the retreats, we ask participants to commit to attending for the full retreat time.


Mindful Campus Practices

Mindful Campus Practices are a series of brief 5 minute guided meditations that use a combination of imagery and your 5 senses to help you tap into the present and cultivate more mindful moments throughout your day. These practices can help Hokies feel more connected to campus regardless of where you physically are by using the audio and/or video for these recordings.
