Lesley University's Mindfulness Programs

An ancient science of mind backed by today's research.

Contemplate, comprehend, and advance with the pioneers in Mindfulness.

Enrich your life and others through rigorous study and intensive meditation practice. Learn and master the Buddhist roots of contemplative practice, mindful communication, ethics, social change, contemplative neuroscience, education, qi gong, and more.

Along the way, you'll deepen your personal practice while exploring how to apply mindfulness to your career, be it in health and wellness, education, social action, leadership, or business.

A program that fits your busy life

This program follows a low-residency format where students come to campus for one, four-day residency in the summer to kick off the program. After the residency, the rest of the courses will start in the fall and will be entirely online and asynchronous.
