The Mind-Body Skills Group at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a meditative group process that includes a powerful and effective combination of research-based mind-body techniques to help people deal with life changes, stress and illnesses. The 10-week course, taught in a supportive group setting by Dr. Vera Moura, provides techniques for self-care, self-awareness and health promotion. Courses are offered year-round, both to health-care professionals and also to the general public, including people with chronic disease.
In the words of one participant: "What I have grown to recognize about myself is that I spend a great deal of time taking care of everyone...This class taught me about my origin and my environment and the role it all payed in how I have learned to survive and to cope with life. I feel better about my existence, and it has allowed me to engage in self-care."
