Mindful Living – Is it the Fountain of Youth?
Course DescriptionMeditation is a most effective way for the body and mind to reach a state of consciousness and relaxation allowing for healing both emotionally and physically, yet some wonder about its effect on brain health and aging. Join us for an introduction to meditation/mindfulness concepts and the importance of brain fitness for good brain health. Participants will get an understanding of why we need to train our minds like we train our bodies and through modern science we now know it’s possible to train our brain and possibly slow down the aging process. Included is discussion, visuals and active participation. Attendees will learn mindful practices and leave with tools to use in their daily lives. It is a segue into the 4- week program offering that goes into a deeper understanding of the brain/heart connection and adds more robust tools to the brain fitness toolbox.
