Mindfulness is being present and engaged in each moment of our lives. It is something that we can all learn, and research shows that it can contribute to improved psychological wellbeing and reduced psychological distress in university students.

Mindfulness for Academic Success (MFAS) is an innovative program consisting of five 60-minute sessions over five weeks. You will learn to use mindfulness to:

  • reduce stress and anxiety
  • improve focus
  • stop procrastinating
  • communicate more effectively
  • study and work more efficiently (and with more enjoyment).

2022 Dates

The next MFAS training starts on Wednesday 27th July, for five consecutive weeks, from 9-10am in the Oasis Common Room (J7 on the campus map).

Each session builds on the one before, so you must commit to all five sessions, and be willing to undertake daily home practice. Guided audio meditations are supplied for home practice as well as notes from each weekly session.

There are limited places available in the courses. To register your interest email  Maureen.germein@flinders.edu.au  who will get you to complete an application form and discuss with you if the program is a good match for your needs.

The course is offered in person at Oasis, Bedford park campus.

Horizon points (4) available.
