We all have minds and emotions–but rarely have we gotten an in-depth education in how they work. The method we will use to explore the subject matter is unique in that it not only teaches through explanations from the fields of neuroscience and emotional intelligence, but it emphasises learning about the mind in a “first-person” way through a practice called mindfulness.
