KORU Mindfulness Courses & Retreats

Koru Mindfulness

Koru Mindfulness® is an evidence-based curriculum specifically designed for teaching mindfulness, meditation, and stress management to college students and other young adults. The curriculum consists of three components, Koru Basic, Koru 2.0, and Koru Retreat.


Koru Basic Classes

Koru Mindfulness is a four-session course that will teach you the skill of mindfulness. It will also help you build the habit of using it in your life regularly. We’ve found that folks get a lot more out of Koru if they stick with it from beginning to end, therefore attendance at all four sessions is required.

Koru is FREE to all Wake Forest University students, faculty, and staff.
