Mindfulness Meditation Workshop – A Cognitive Skill to Enhance Daily Living

January 31, 2020 10:30 am - 11:30 am
CEW+, 330 East Liberty Street, Ann Arbor, MI 48104

Being present in the moment is a skill that can be learned when practiced on a regular basis. Evidence-based mindful meditation has been shown to reduce implicit age and race bias, reduce the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and pain, improve cognitive functioning, and assist in ending ruminating thought patterns. This workshop will provide an overview of the basics of this powerful tool, introduce ways to incorporate both formal and informal mindful meditation practices into daily life, and a guided mindful meditation experience. In addition, every Wednesday from 12:15 – 12:45 PM, CEW+ holds guided mindful meditation sessions providing a weekly opportunity to practice in a supportive space.
