UCLA'S MAPS II: cultivating positive emotions

Dates: To Be Announced!

LOCATION: Toluca Lake Tennis Club  6711 Forest Lawn Dr. Toluca Lake, CA 90068 (across from Warner Bros. Studios)

Pre-requisite: Attendance in any introductory MAPs I series or equivalent mindfulness introductory class with permission from our instructor. If you have not taken a MAPs I class at MARC, please email us a brief description of you equivalent experience to marcinfo@ucla.edu before class start date.

In this class series, we will explore the science and practice of how to develop more equanimity, kindness, generosity, compassion, and gratitude, in ways that allow us to begin right where we are in our lives, and right where we are in the moment.  Far from 'fake it 'til you feel it', these practices, arising from mindfulness meditation contemplative traditions, are backed by science from research labs at Stanford, UC Berkeley, and the University of Wisconsin - Madison, among others.  Learn how to naturally experience and express positive emotions that are our natural birthright, even amidst the turmoil of our times.
