In October 2016, for the first time we found an Arabic word for mindfulness at Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane. Since then, we conducted mindfulness workshops, retreats and de-stress days during exams. However, in Fall 2018, I offered a 3-credit mindfulness course to foster well-being in the classroom, outside of workshops and yoga classes. This was a first course on mindfulness in a Moroccan university, with activities such as in-class guided meditation, daily personal practice, retreat, weekly embroidery and gardening classes, weekly critical reflective journal writing, workshops on art and theater, and exploring literature on mindfulness.

In this workshop, I aim to give a glimpse into the journey of 17 undergraduate students in a 3-credit elective on mindfulness. We will practice a guided meditation, critical reflective journal, play with art, look at student project (videos, photos, journal, paper) and aim to experience the collective journey of the class.
