|Using Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction To Promote Health|
Date: August 5, 2014 12:00 - 1:30 PM EDT
MindfulnessMeditation is a way to quiet and calm the mind by paying nonjudgmental attention to your moment-to-moment experience. It helps restore and maintain a sense of personal balance and develop the skills to avoid emotional and physical depletion. This is important for persons who want to avoid physical or professional burnout and vital to professional health and longevity. Learn how this 2,500-year-old practice has been adapted for use in modern medicine by the seminal work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Through numerous research studies on his Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction model, mindfulness skills have been consistently documented as profoundly beneficial for the treatment and prevention of stress-related illnesses and conditions
