Educating for Mindawareness
Organized by: Pamela Williams
The benefits of mindful practices for health, concentration and learning, enhancing the innate joy of everyday life and appreciation of our unique capabilities cannot be more important in our increasingly complex, global world. "Meditation can have a serious impact on your brain long beyond the time when you're actually sitting and meditating, and this may have a positive impact on your day-to-day living," said Sara Lazar, an instructor at Harvard Medical School. Her research was funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control. The ability to provide these programs to a wide ranging population is heavily dependent on volunteers, such as myself, who are taking time from paid work opportunities, to prepare and travel to provide such a program without a salary or stipend.
