About Mindful USC

Mindfulness is the practice of paying attention with kindness and compassion.

Mindful USC offers mindfulness-related classes, programming and events designed to foster growth, health, wisdom, compassion, and connection within and among the diverse communities of USC.

To be mindful is to be:


to know what is happening right now in the changing flow of experience


receptive and open to what is happening right now


to respond with compassion to whatever arises
