Mindful "U" Learning platform

Making long-lasting change requires motivation and commitment and the learning process needs to be fun and easy.

The 26-lesson Mindful Professional Certification Course™ requires one-hour per week; students watch videos, listen to audio files, read articles, and interact with like-minded mindful professionals on the Mindful “U” Platform. Students who complete the course, earn a Certified Mindful Professional (CMP) designation. The designation has helped many graduates achieve their professional goals.

Mindful “U” students and alumni are highly supported. They can ask questions of the group, mentor and be mentored, get one-on-one support, and attend weekly Core-Topics live group discussions.

Not ready to commit to the Mindful Professional Certification Course but you want to connect with other mindful professionals, have access to mindful resources, and be part of a lively group discussion? Become a Mindful Professional Member.

The Mindful “U” curriculum goes far beyond what is taught in most school and includes 26 lessons covering communication skills, stress reduction, relationship-building, collaboration, empathy, and much more.
