Mindful Awareness Practices

Mindful Awareness Practices are the signature evidence-based educational programs of MARC. These class series are open to the public and to all UCLA staff, faculty, and students.



Daylong Retreats

MARC programs numerous daylong retreats throughout the year. Some daylongs are designed for beginners, and some are designed to help deepen an already existing mindfulness practice with exercises such as eating, walking, and sitting meditations.
