Kent State of Wellness Offers Free Koru Mindfulness Training for Spring Semester

Start off your spring semester with mindfulness and meditation skills that can help you become more resilient, more mindful and more rested, and enjoy the many other benefits associated with this wellness approach.


This free, four-week, 75-minute class is offered by Kent State of Wellness, the university-level initiative to promote health and wellness at Kent State University, and is open to Kent State faculty, staff and students.


Participants will be trained in Koru Mindfulness, an evidence-based training specifically designed for emerging adults, but anyone will find this useful at any age.


“We offered these classes in the fall, and they filled up within days!” says Melissa Celko, director of Kent State of Wellness and facilitator of Koru Mindfulness training at Kent State. “We had a powerful gathering of faculty, staff and students, and we hope that more members of our campus community will take advantage of these free classes to learn proven techniques to better manage stress.”


Participants will receive a free Koru Mindfulness book. Spots fill up quickly, so register today!
