Koru Mindfulness offered by DFE

Registration is open for Spring 2020 sessions (see below).

A core value of the Duke Financial Economics Center is teaching students life skills that will serve them not only professionally but more broadly as they embark on their post-college lives. DFE now offers the Koru Mindfulness curriculum, an evidence-based mindfulness training program that is designed to meet the needs of college-age students.

In four 75-minute classes, students learn how to

  • more effectively manage stress through skills training
  • become more aware of thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to their stress levels
  • build and sustain a meditation practice

Koru was developed by mental health practitioners at Duke Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) and has grown in popularity well beyond Duke. In a randomized, controlled trial of Koru, students reported feeling more calm, mindful, rested, and compassionate toward themselves. Over 700 Duke students have done Koru.
