Research is emerging on the changes within the mind, brain,
and body resulting from contemplative practices such as mindfulness-based
meditation, tai chi, and yoga. Contemplative Medicine is an interdisciplinary
practice that seeks clarify mind-body changes across emotional, behavioral,
cognitive, and perceptual domains. Mindfulness meditation has gained in
popularity over the last couple of decades, but we now are seeing scientific
evidence that supports the impact on the brain.
Join us for 30 minutes of information on why you need mindfulness and the science behind it. Then, stay for 10 minutes of mindfulness exercises.
