According to a recent study, published in the journal Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging, practicing mindfulness meditation appears to be associated with measurable changes in the brain regions involved in memory, learning, and emotion. Mindfulness meditation focuses attention on breathing to develop increased awareness of the present. Previous research has demonstrated that mindfulness meditation may reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.  The part of NIH that has primary research for mindfulness meditation is the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.  https://nccih.nih.gov/

Stephanie Phillips has practiced and studied mindfulness for many years.  In this presentation, she will present information on research about the benefits of mindfulness meditation and lead the group in meditation sessions.
