Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPs) in Long Beach

Classes Overview

Mindful Awareness Practices are the signature educational programs of the Mindful Awareness Research Center. These six-week class series are open to the public and to UCLA staff, faculty, and students. The classes lay the foundation for students to understand basic principles of mindfulness, develop a personal meditation practice, and to apply the principles in their daily life on an ongoing basis.

Each class is a combination of lecture, practice, and group feedback and discussion. MAPs is taught in a context of a supportive community environment with classes no larger than 30-40 students. Students report that the group support was one of the most helpful and inspiring aspects of the class.
