"This class has given me many tools with which to practice mindfulness in my daily life. I really appreciated the social and historical consciousness that Angela brought into her presentation and consideration of concepts in mindfulness, from exploring the Hindu and Buddhist origins of mindfulness techniques to acknowledging the way in which oppression and injustice can affect individuals' mental health."
