The Language of Mindfulness Podcast - #4 -  Why Mindful Communications is a required college class at NHTI - with Dan Huston

In this episode, you’ll hear from Dan Huston who created and teaches the college class “Communicating Mindfully: Mindfulness-Based Communication and Emotional Intelligence” at NHTI. Over time, the faculty noted that Dan’s students stood out in their classes as more engaged, better communicators, and simply better students! They wanted to know why, so he trained the faculty as well. As the staff experienced the benefits of mindfulness first hand, they began to include mindfulness content in their own courses and recommend Dan’s class, leading to expanding the mindfulness curriculum. It’s even a required course for some degree programs including IT!

You’ll hear how he got started on the path to mindfulness and how the entire program and textbook grew over time to become the success it is.
