Studies have shown how even a short regular mindfulness practice can help improve our well-being. Learning how to come into the present moment and to bring full awareness to the daily activities that we engage in help in improving the symptoms of depression. Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy or MBCT helps prevent relapse into depression without side-effects. In this talk, we will learn about MBCT which draws from the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program initiated and studied by Jon Kabat-Zinn and his team at the University of Massachusetts. There will also be an opportunity to experience a live demonstration of a short mindfulness practice.

Mindfulness has positive effects on the brain. As a result, our memory gets stronger while anxiety and depression go down. One is also better able to concentrate and reduce the effects of physical pain and emotional distress. Yes, your body can handle pain better and your mood and outlook get brighter. All of this is based not just on hearsay from happy meditators, but results of research done in some of America’s most prestigious and respected universities: UCLA, University of Massachusetts, Yale and Johns Hopkins to name a few. In this visual presentation, you can learn about some of these leading studies, find out what exactly is meant by the term ‘mindfulness’, and experience a live demonstration of a short mindfulness practice.
