Mindful Awareness is the moment-by-moment process of actively and openly observing one’s physical, mental and emotional experiences. Mindfulness has scientific support as a means to reduce stress, improve attention, boost the immune system, reduce emotional reactivity, and promote a general sense of health and well-being.

Marvin Belzer, Ph.D, has taught mindfulness meditation for over fifteen years and is visiting this year at UCLA.  For the past ten years he has taught a semester-long meditation course in the Department of Philosophy at Bowling Green St. University, where he is a Professor of philosophy. He and Diana Winston were instrumental in developing week-long mindfulness retreats for teens in the mid-1990s.  He is currently the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center’s In-Resident Mindfulness Teacher.
