ENGL 4631 Capstone: Mindfulness & Storytelling (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course will invite students to reflect on their humanity by exploring storytelling and naming through various methods. Via reading short stories and essays, we will engage how others name the world in an effort to change it. By interviewing an elder, we will learn awareness and skills of listening to inform our own views of life. And via a focus on mindfulness— nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment while observing one’s thoughts, emotions, and reactions—we will engage our own internal storytelling to reflect on ways our inner rhetoric can help us or hold us back.
