Johnathan Woodside on Mindfulness Meditation and Wellness/$8 min. donation
This presentation will provide participants with a clear understanding of mindfulness and focus on the importance and benefits of cultivating a meditation practice for greater wellbeing.
Research on Mindfulness has found that brain activity and structural changes occur after regular practice, leading to enhanced emotional regulation, better memory, and improved perspective-taking. Mindfulness techniques have also been shown to enhance cognitive functions including focused attention, working memory, and unfocused sustained attention. People who practice mindfulness function more effectively and generally feel better.
