You don’t need to burn incense and meditate to be practice mindfulness…you just need a focus to calm all the crap being flung around in your head! On this week’s Laughbox, I get to interview mindfulness expert, Nick Mosca, as he shares simple strategies to decrease your stress and live with more mindfulness.
Drawing on over ten years of experience as an educator, Nick Mosca empowers people to align mindfulness practices with their interests, reduce stress, and reclaim their lives.
Nick currently serves as a Mindfulness Coach/English & Public Speaking Teacher at The George Jackson Academy. In this capacity, he offers over 175 staff and underserved youth practical curricula for using personalized mindfulness to enhance their lives. In 2015, The Atlantic featured Nick’s mindfulness-based Selfless Love Act Project that he co-authored for both educators and students at this institution.
Nick also co-hosts on WABC Radio and has presented at Yale University, Squarespace, Columbia University, New York University, Share Fair Nation, The HealthCare Chaplaincy Network, The Milken Scholars Program, and Molloy College. Moreover, Nick’s writing has appeared in Psychology Today and he is the elected Research Chairperson of The Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor, through which he earned a scholarship for using mindfulness and comedy to advance world peace.
Nick holds a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard University where he won The Billings Prize for inspiring behavioral change through positive humor. During his undergraduate studies, Nick earned a B.A. in English (Magna Cum Laude) from Georgetown University. He is a member of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD).
