Meditation has been studied over 30 years and is an evidence-based method that counteracts daily stress responses. The effects have been shown in MRIs of the brain, in biochemical changes in blood, and even in genetic changes in the body.
 
This mind-body method has been proven to significantly improve health and quality of life for patients with illnesses that are caused or made worse by stress, including obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, pain and fatigue syndromes, mood disorders and many others. It has also been shown to decrease complications in cancer treatment, surgical procedures, and improve pain in both acute and chronic pain disorders. It has been shown to also improve attention, increase creativity and provide greater cognitive flexibility.
 
This stress-reduction workshop will help each participant to:
  • Understand stress and disease affect the body and its consequences
  • Become familiar with current research on meditation and its role in stress-reduction and healing
  • Learn and practice a simple mindfulness, evidenced based method to reduce stressful stimuli
