DESCRIPTION: This presentation will provide an overview of what mindfulness is, an experience of being mindful, and an exploration of how living more mindfully can support you, your clients,and the general public. Decades of research and thousands of studies indicate that mindfulness meditation can improve stress resilience, physical health,memory & learning, focus, immune system functioning, interpersonal relationships,and emotional well-being.Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week class and has been shown to change the structure of the brain in positive ways. Participation may result in reductions in depression and anxiety, and improve management of chronic pain and chronic medical conditions. MBSR was developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD and is taught worldwide and at over 250 medical centers in the US, including Mission Health Systems here in Asheville.
