Week 1 – Know Thyself | Thanks, Prof Green for helping me stay calm!


Now that I have completed this week’s assignments, I feel as if I have just returned from a time-travel adventure to ancient Greece where I listened in on all the gossip about Socrates!

The UVa Coursera course, Know Thyself  by Professor Mitch Green, opened this week, and  (at least for me) it sure was the perfect week for lessons in calming down!  We had a heavy, wet snow in Charlottesville that caused many power failures and all of their assorted miseries. Saving everything that one is working on every time the power blinks and the DSL drops off is really nerve-wracking, so I found myself employing “Bamboo Breathing” many times over the past couple of days.  This was certainly a class fit for the moment!

Want to enjoy meditating, relaxing, thinking, and learning?  There is still time to sign up and join us in this adventure: www.coursera.org/course/knowthyself

This is the first of my weekly reflections on Coursera/ Know Thyself by UVa Professor Mitch Green.
