The Center for Koru Mindfulness Train the Trainer Program

About This Event

The Koru Mindfulness® program was developed over the course of a decade by psychiatrists Holly Rogers, MD & Margaret Maytan, MD to bring the benefits of mindfulness to the college students they worked with at Duke University’s student counseling center.

Koru is a mindfulness curriculum designed specifically to target the developmental needs and interests of young adults. Koru has been empirically tested in a randomized, controlled trial and found to have significant benefits on sleep, perceived stress, mindfulness, and self-compassion.

The Center for Koru Mindfulness exists to provide life-changing mindfulness training for young adults, everywhere. Our vision is that young adults everywhere create just, meaningful lives, guided by inner wisdom, grounded in personal ethics.

The Koru Center Train the Trainer Program is a private event. Check out our website if you're interested in attending one of our Koru Teacher Trainings or taking a Koru class! (contact info blocked)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I am an oncology nurse and a few long time patients have died recently. I need to rejuvenate and return to my breath! Elizabeth
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
